2 1/2cbread flour
1 1/3cwarm water
Measure 2 cups of flour in a large mixing bowl. Add to it yeast, sugar, and salt and whisk together. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the water and olive oil.
Use a hand-mixer with dough hooks and mix the dough until a soft ball is formed and all the flour is incorporated.
Flour a surface with 1/4 c of the reserved flour and knead the dough into a ball. Coat the same bowl with extra oil and place the dough ball inside. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm environment for at least 30 min or until doubled in size.
Punch down dough and knead again with 1/4 c of the reserved flour. Divide dough in half and return one half to the bowl and cover. Cover the other half in another oiled bowl. Let it rise/rest for another 20 minutes.
After the final rise, the dough is ready for use. Use a bit more flour for rolling and shaping.
This dough bakes in about 12-15 minutes with sauce and toppings at 450 degrees. I pre-bake them for 5 minutes before adding sauce and toppings to ensure a crispy crust.
