- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3 3/4 cups bread flour
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Remove dough and fit dough into pizza pans, forming a 1-inch thick edge.
Brush with a little olive oil or vegetable oil, then let the crust rise for 10 to 15 minutes. Spread with tomato sauce or toppings of choice. Bake pizza at 400° for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is browned and cheese is melted and bubbly. Makes 2 to 3 12-inch pizzas, depending on the thickness of the crust, or one thick-crust 12-inch deep-dish pizza. If you're only making 1 pizza, shape the remaining dough into 1 or 2 balls, wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze.
