- Serves: 1 Pizza
- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- 3 ½ to 4 cups King Arthur Pizza Flour®
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 envelope instant dry yeast
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 ½ cups water, 110 degrees F.
- 2 tablespoons Organic Roots® Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus 2 teaspoons
Combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer or food processor and combine. While the machine is running, add the water and 2 tablespoons of oil and beat until the dough forms into a ball. If the dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a solid ball. If the dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead into a smooth, firm ball.
Grease a large bowl with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, add the dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm area to let it double in size, about 1 hour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 2 equal pieces. Cover each with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let them rest for 10 minutes. Using a rolling pin, form each piece into desired shape for pizza.
