2 1/2 to 3 c. all-purpose
1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 c. warm water (115~ to 120~)
2 Tbsp. cooking oil
In mixer bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups of the flour and the
yeast. Stir in the water and the oil. Beat at low speed for
1/2 minute, scraping bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes on high
speed. Stir in as much flour as possible with a spoon. Turn
out onto lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of remaining
flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and
elastic (6 to 8 minutes total).
Thin Pizza Crusts: Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
For 12-inch pizzas, divide dough in half. On lightly floured
surface, roll each half into a 13-inch circle (or for 10-inch
pizzas, divide dough into thirds and roll into 11-inch cir-
cles). Transfer circles of dough to greased 12-inch pizza pans
or baking sheets. Build up edges slightly. Bake at 425 degrees about
12 minutes or until lightly browned. Add desired pizza top-
pings. Return to 425 degrees oven; bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer
or until bubbly. Makes 2 (12-inch) or 3 (10-inch) thin-crust
Pan Pizza Crusts: Cover dough and let rise in warm
place until double (about 1 hour). Punch down; divide in half.
Cover; let rest 10 minutes. With greased fingers, pat dough
onto bottom and halfway up sides of 2 greased 11 x 7 x 1 1/2
inch or 9 x 9 x 2-inch baking pans. Cover; let rise until
nearly double (30 to 45 minutes). Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25
minutes or until lightly browned. Add desired pizza toppings.
Return to 375 degrees oven; bake for 20 to 25 minutes longer or until
bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Makes 2 (11 x
7-inch or 9 x 9-inch) pan pizzas.
Two-Crust Pizza: Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface roll each
half into a 13-inch circle. Transfer 1 circle to greased
12-inch pizza pan or baking sheet. Spread desired pizza
toppings over dough. Moisten edge of dough with a little
water; top with second circle of dough. Crimp edges of dough
to seal. Brush top with a little milk, if desired. Prick top
in several places. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Let
stand 5 minutes before serving. Makes 1 (12-inch) two-crust
