Perfect Pizza Crust

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 Tbs. oil
  • 3 cups flour (I use part half whole wheat)

Instructions

  1. Combine yeast, sugar, and water in a medium mixing bowl and let sit for about 5 minutes to let the yeast react.
  2. Add other ingredients and mix until it starts to form a dough.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 - 10 minutes. It should be smooth and resilient.
  4. Grease a medium bowl and place dough inside. Flip in bowl to cover all sides with oil and cover with towel or plastic wrap.
  5. Put in warm place to rise until doubled in size.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spread out on pizza pan or stone and cover with desired toppings
  7. Bake for 20 - 26 minutes or until edges start to brown
