Homemade Pizza Dough

Sue Becker, CNC (Bread Beckers)
2 cups of warm water
4-4 ½ cups of hard white wheat flour
4 tsp of instant yeast
¼ cup of olive or avocado oil
2 tsp of pink Himalayan salt
-         In a large bowl, combine water and flour. Mixuntil a soft dough forms. Let rise for about 20 minutes for the gluten todevelop.
-         Sprinkle the yeast on top an mix. Add the oiland the salt.
-         Knead dough until smooth and elastic. This usuallytakes about five minutes.
-         Cover tightly with plastic or beeswax wrap.Refrigerate for 24 hours, up to three days.
- Bring dough to room temperature
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Divide dough into half. Sprinkle iron skillet or pan with a dusting of cornmeal.
- Roll dough out on a flour surface. Press the dough into your iron skillet and push it up the
sides of the skillet. Do the same if you are using a baking stone or any pan.
- Add your toppings and bake for 15-20 minutes. If you have a thicker crust, I'd pre-bake the
crust for about 10-12 minutes to assure that the dough will be done.
