Basic Pizza Dough Recipe 03


- 3 1/4 cups unbleached flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 envelope active dry yeast
- 3 tablespoons olive oil


In a bowl combine the flour and salt and mix thoroughly. In a separate stainless steel bowl
combine the water and yeast and using a whisk add 2 tablespoons of oil. Let rest for 5 minutes.
Pour the water into the center of the flour and with a spatula stir to combine well into a sticky
mass. Pour this mass out onto a lightly floured surface and begin to knead the dough by working
the dough with the heel of the palm of your hand. Push outward and pull the inside edge over the
top. Repeating the process over again to create a smooth ball of dough free of stickiness. Place the
ball of dough into a clean stainless steel bowl that has been brushed with the remaining 1
tablespoon of olive oil. Cover with a clean cloth and let rise at room temperature for 1 1/2 hours or
until it has doubled in size. When the dough has risen it can be divided in half and the two pieces
formed into two balls which will later be patted into the traditional pizza shape. recipe # 4
