Easy pizza recipe

  • 2.5 cups of bread flour
  • 1Tbsp. Active dry yeast
  • 1tsp. Sugar
  • 1tsp. salt
  • 1 cup warm water (no more than 115 degrees F)

Mix water, sugar, yeast. Mix and let sit until foamy.
While this is happening sift all flour and add the salt. Mix with a fork so salt is incorporated. Mix flour and water mixture with a fork until you can't stir very well and turn onto a floured surface. Kneed 8-10 minutes until dough is elastic. Shape into a ball and put into a lightly oiled (olive oil/vegetable oil) bowl, cover with plastic and let sit in a warm place (draft free) until dough has doubled in size (around 1.5-2 hours). Punch dough down and start to stretch dough to desired size. Have your oven heated to as hot as it will go (if you have a pizza stone (500+ if possible); preheat the oven with the pizza stone in it on the lowest rack.

Apply desired sauce and toppings, cook for 12-13 minutes, or until cheese is just starting to brown.
