- 2 cups warm water
- 1 Tablespoon yeast
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 5 cups flour, divided
- 4 Tablespoons olive oil (2 Tablespoons per pan)
Mix warm water and yeast and let sit 5 minutes until yeast proofs. Add 2 ½ cups flour with proofed yeast and mix well in Kitchen Aid or with a dough hook. Add additional 2 ½ cups flour and salt, knead until smooth. Cover bowl with saran wrap. Let dough rest in a ball for 10 to 20 minutes. Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil onto baking sheet or pizza pan and evenly coat bottom of baking sheet or pizza pan. Remove dough from bowl and add more flour as needed (a little at a time) to alleviate the stickiness of the dough if needed. I add a few Tablespoons usually.
