: ---PIZZA DOUGH ------ 4¾ c white flour
2 c warm water -- 105 degrees
3 ts dry yeast
1 ts salt
1 TB olive oil
: ---TOPPING ------
: olive oil
: coarse Kosher salt (sea : salt)
: dried rosemary
Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Add yeast/water mixture to 3 cups of the flour. Mix, adding regular salt and olive oil a little at a time. Add the rest of the flour bit by bit until the dough "feels right".
Turn dough onto a floured board and knead; adding more flour if necessary to keep the dough from sticking to your fingers. Put the dough in a greased bowl and rotate to distribute the grease all over the dough. Let rise until about double in size (approx. 2 hours).
Remove the dough, punch down and roll out on the floured board to a thickness of ⅜ to ½ inch (make it any shape you desire). Put dough in a pan or cookie sheet. With a pastry brush, paint liberally with additional olive oil. Use your thumb and 2 fingers to make dimples over the entire surface. Sprinkle the Kosher sea salt and rosemary over the surface of the dough. Let rise a little more.
Bake at 375 degrees F for about 25 minutes. When done, paint liberally again with olive oil. Makes 1 white pizza.
