Top-ranked recipe named "Basic Pizza Dough"
In a large bowl, combine the water, yeast, sugar, and 1 tablespoon oil and stir to combine. Let sit until the mixture is foamy, about 5 minutes.
Add 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the salt, mixing by hand until it is all incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Continue adding the flour, 1/4 cup at a time, working the dough after each addition, until all the flour is incorporated but the dough is still slightly sticky. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth but still slightly tacky, 3 to 5 minutes.
Oil a large mixing bowl with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil. Place the dough in the bowl and turn to oil all sides. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set in a warm, draft-free place until nearly doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

staceyallenkirchein 1 year agoThis was great! Next time I think I will cook the crust for a few minutes before I put the toppings on, the crust wasn't quite browned enough. It was yummy though will definitely make this again!

aphilbeck8 2 years agoVery good, there is another recipe with these ingredients but way too little flour. They really messed up calling for only 2 cups of flour. This one is perfect. I used fresh mozz. and some asiago, pepperoni and fresh mushrooms.Thanks for posting, Ann
