" This recipe yields a crust that is soft and doughy on the inside and slightly crusty on the outside. Cover it with your favorite sauce and topping to make a delicious pizza. "
Ingredients 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar 1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
Directions 1 In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and brown sugar in the water, and let sit for 10 minutes.
2 Stir the salt and oil into the yeast solution. Mix in 2 1/2 cups of the flour.
3 Turn dough out onto a clean, well floured surface, and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Place the dough into a well oiled bowl, and cover with a cloth. Let the dough rise until double; this should take about 1 hour. Punch down the dough, and form a tight ball. Allow the dough to relax for a minute before rolling out. Use for your favorite pizza recipe.
4 Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). If you are baking the dough on a pizza stone, you may place your toppings on the dough, and bake immediately. If you are baking your pizza in a pan, lightly oil the pan, and let the dough rise for 15 or 20 minutes before topping and baking it.
5 Bake pizza in preheated oven, until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
