Step 1

This recipe yields about 24 ounces (3 8-10" pizza shells or 2 12-14" pizza shells). It can be scaled proportionately on a 3-1 ratio, flour to water.

Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle and mix on low, until mixture comes together. Switch to the dough hook and continue mixing, medium-low, another 3 to 4 minutes. Check the dough – if it is too dry, add a bit more water. If too sticky, add a bit more flour.

Dump dough onto a lightly floured countertop or board and continue to knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, 5 to 7 minutes. Form the dough into a ball and place in a lightly greased bowl, turn to coat, and cover with plastic wrap or a tea towel. Let rest 30 to 45 minutes until risen.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and press down to deflate. Cut the dough into thirds (or desired portions), and form into tight balls to press air out. At this point, you can place the balls of dough on a floured board covered with oiled plastic or a towel, and let rise for one hour if you want to use the dough today. Alternately, place the dough on a lightly floured tray, cover with oiled plastic and refrigerate overnight. Allow dough to sit a room temperature 10-15 minutes before shaping/baking.

After allowing the dough to site, roll out on a pizza pan -- or try your hand at tossing in the air! Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 - 20 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is bubbling.
