Ingredients

  • 2 1/4

    tsp yeast (one package of active dry yeast)

  • 2

    cups warm water

  • 5

    cups All Purpose Flour

  • 2

    tsp salt

  • Oil, to coat bowl

Directions

In the bowl of the stand mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes or until creamy. Combine the flour and salt in a medium sized bowl. Add half to the yeast mixture. Use the dough hook, and mix until combined. Add in remaining flour a bit at a time, until dough is smooth and pulling away from the sides of the bowl. Remove dough from bowl, wiping out if necessary, and coat with just enough oil to cover the bowl. Return dough to bowl and cover with a loose towel. Allow to rise until double in size, about 2 hours. Punch down and divide into 2 to 3 balls, depending on desired pizza size. Cover the dough again and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before rolling out. Bake at 475-500 degrees for 12-15 minutes with desired toppings.
