Yield: 16 servings
|¼ cup||Warm water|
|4¼ cup||Sifted flour|
|1¼ cup||Lukewarm water|
|2 tablespoons||Olive oil|
Pour warm water into a large bowl, sprinkle in yeast and stir to dissolve. Mix in 2 cups of the flour, the salt and the sugar. Add lukewarm water and oil and beat until smooth. Mix in remaining flour and knead on a lightly floured board until elastic. Shape into a ball, turn into a greased bowl and turn over greased side up. Let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Divide Dough in half; freeze half in an airtight container or plastic bag if you're making only one pizza. Form dough into a ball and let rest 5 minutes. Roll out into a disk. Add desired toppings and bake pizza at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
