Now with a mixer mix (if hand-held mixer) 2 minutes high speed or (if you have a regular mixer) 2 minutes medium speed.
Then add: 1 cup flour And carefully mix high speed for one more minute.
Then add by hand kneeding for 5 minutes minimum: 1 cup flour (or more if dough is too sticky) Kneed this until the dough is soft but easily handlable without being too sticky. Place in a bowl greased with olive oil in a warme (but turned off!) oven covered with a cloth and let the dough rise until it is doubled ~ takes about 1½ hours or so.
When dough has risen punch it down and separate it into either 2 for 2 thick crust pizzas or 4 for 4 thin crust pizzas and carefully, by spinning and tossing the dough shape it into olive oil greased (lightly) pans. Be careful you don't toss it too high! Place on top your favorite sauce and fixings and bake for 20 minutes or until edges look done (baking time depends on the oven) at 375 f
