Pizza Dough

½ - 1 oz. yeast
½ tsp. sugar
1 ½ cups water (95°- 115°)
16 oz. flour (white, wheat, or mixed)
1 tsp salt

Dissolve yeast and sugar in water; allow to rest for 8 minutes. In separate bowl, combine flour and salt. Pour yeast mixture over flour mixture and mix well with a heavy spoon. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes. Add enough flour to make the right consistency. (I actually mix and knead the dough in my KitchenAid mixer. Works great!) Separate dough into two balls (one large 2/3, one small 1/3). Working from the edges to the center, press dough into a circle. Place dough on lightly greased pizza pans and stretch dough to edges. Spread sauce over crust and top with cheese and desired toppings.

Bake at 450° for 8-12 minutes or until crust is a light, golden brown.
Makes one large and one small pizza
