Ingredients

2/3 Cup Lukewarm Water

1 tsp Sugar

1 1/4 tsp Yeast

1 Cup All-Purpose Flour

3/4 Cup Bread Flour

1/2 tsp Salt

Olive Oil

Instructions

Add sugar to the water and stir to dissolve. Add the yeast and give it a quick stir to combine. Allow it to rest for about 10 minutes until it has foamed.

Combine both flours and salt in a large mixing bowl with a non-stick spatula, or with a dough hook in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the yeast mixture, then mix until a soft dough forms.

Coat a large bowl with some olive oil or non-stick spray. Lightly flour your hands, form the dough into a ball, and place it inside the bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean dishtowel or plastic wrap then put it in a warm place to proof.

Allow the dough to rise and double in size. This takes about 45-60 minutes, depending on the temperature of your environment.

Place the dough on a lightly floured flat surface like a marble pastry board or even a clean counter. Pat the dough down into a disk, then use a rolling pin to roll it out to about 12 inches in diameter. (I have found it helps to roll the dough out a bit, then let it rest for a few minutes, then roll it out a little more.)

Coat your pizza stone with a small amount of oil or non-stick spray, then place the pizza dough on it. Add your pizza sauce, cheese, and desired toppings.

Bake in the oven at 450F for 8-12 minutes, until crust is deep brown and cheese is bubbly.
