Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

In a small bowl, mix first 3 ingredients. Let stand for 5 minutes until foamy.

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine salt, flour (no need to use the full quantity - use enough flour to make a stiff dough), sugar oil, and the second 2/3 cup of warm water.

Step 4

Mix together yeast and flour mixture and knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic.

Step 5

Place dough into an oiled bowl and turn once to coat with oil. Cover and let rise until doubled in size (about 45 minutes to 1 hour).

Step 6

Sprinkle a pan with cornmeal or semolina flour. Press dough out with your fingertips (or roll out) into a circle (or use a square cookie sheet for Sicilian style pizza).

Step 7

Brush with olive oil and spread with your favorite toppings (pizza sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers and onions are a few suggestions).

Step 8

Bake at 350°F-400°F for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden and lightly browned in spots and cheese is melted and bubbly.
