Pizza Dough Recipe

My husband is the baker in the family - me, I do not like following directions. This really is an easy recipe. He whipped it up while making coffee, so it must be easy. I found the originial recipe at Baskers Fun Foods Blog and my husband has revised it over the last several months. This recipe is perfect for pre-grilling pizzas and freezing.
Pizza Dough Recipe


1 pkt yeast
1 1/4 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar or honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 1/2 - 4 cups flour

In stand mixer, combine flour and salt. Add yeast and sugar to warm water and let sit for 10 minutes to activate the yeast. Add water and yeast to flour mixture and combine using a dough hook. Mix ingredients until dough forms. Allow dough to rise 30 minutes or longer. Using a olive oil mister, mist pan with olive oil; or, brush pizza pan with olive oil using a basting brush.  Dust pan lightly with cornmeal to keep from sticking to the pan. On a floured surface roll dough out into desired pizza size and place onto pizza pan or baking sheet if making a square pizza. Top with sauce, cheese and desired toppings. Bake at higest setting in oven (550*) for 10 - 12 minutes. Watch pizza to make sure you do not over cook it. For a more authentic italian pizza, try grilling your pizza.
