Do you love a hot, fresh homemade pizza, but haven't been able to make a good pizza crust? Now you can. Follow these simple instructions and you'll be baking up delicious pizza in no time.
1 3/4 cups of good quality bread flour.
1/2 teaspoon rapid rise yeast.
6 ounces hot water - 100-105 degrees.
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil.
In large bowl, mix all ingredients until all liquid is absorbed and no dry flour remains in the bowl.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. This makes the dough easier to work with.
Knead the dough on a floured surface until it is pliable and not sticky, usually 3 to 5 minutes.
Form into a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for about two hours or until doubled in size.
Makes one 13 to 15-inch pizza.
