How to make it

  • Stir yeast into 1/2 cup of warm water, mixing completely.
  • Blend in 1 cup of all purpose flour, mixing well.
  • Cover bowl and let rise in warm place for half an hour or so or till the starter is full of bubbles.
  • Stir the salt into the remaining flour, mix well, and add to the starter. Add the oil, and begin to slowly add the rest of the water until you have created a moist dough.
  • Knead for a good 5 minutes, adding additional drops of water till as needed till the dough is smooth.
  • Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl about three times the size of the dough, cover and let rise till doubled, about 2 hours.
  • To finish the dough,
  • turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes more.
  • Divide the dough into three balls, and use immediately, or freeze any you do not use in an airtight bag.
  • ::::::::::::::::NOTE:::::::::The dough may be kept in the refrigerator over night, in a well oiled pan, and covered with plastic wrap. To use, remove and let warm to room temperature, and then form into pizzas as desired.
  • ::::::::::::::SPECIAL TIP:::::To quickly warm refrigerated dough; place in a microwave-proof bowl, cover with plastic wrap with several holes poked in, and microwave on "defrost" for two minutes. To defrost a ball of frozen dough; Microwave on "defrost" one to two minutes, let rest five minutes, then defrost for another minute. Let rest another five minutes then knead and squeeze to soften any lumps; let rest to come to room temperature.

    I have a pizza sauce recipe I want to try, so your timing is perfect - I'll try your crust at the same time. A nice tip of the hat to Putercop
