Quick and Easy Pizza Dough
Makes 6 (10 inch) pizzas
1 package of dry active yeast
2 cups of lukewarm water
4 teaspoons of salt
4 ½ cups of all-purpose flour (you can use whole wheat too)
2 tablespoons olive oil
In an electric mixer with the dough hook attached, stir yeast and lukewarm water until combined. Add salt and then add flour until dough begins to form and is not sticky, about 10-12 minutes.Remove dough from bowl and place on a smooth working surface. Divide dough into 6 balls, about 6 ounces each. Place each dough ball on a lightly floured surface and cover with a towel. Let rise for about 45 minutes.
One at a time, roll each dough ball on a floured surface until a thin 10 inch round pizza shape is formed. Store by simply freezing unused dough in plastic wrap.
