     Pizza Dough

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Preptime   20

1 (1/4 oz) pkg active dry or fresh yeast
1-1/4 cup of warm water (105F)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey or sugar
3-1/3 cup bread flour (or 1-1/3 cup all purpose, 2 cups whole wheat flour)
1-1/2 tsp of salt

Put warm water (80 to 110 degrees) into a bowl. Add sugar or honey and mix with a spoon. Add yeast, mix and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Combine 3 cups of the flour and salt in a bowl. Pour in the oil and, when absorbed, scrape in the dissolved yeast. Start mixing.
When the mixture gets too heavy to mix, start kneading the dough with your hands. Knead the dough until you have a smooth ball. (up to 15 min) If the dough cracks it is too dry. Add water bit by bit until if forms a nice coherent ball. If your dough feels more like batter, it is too wet and you need to add flour bit by bit.
Coat the dough with olive oil, place it in a large bowl and cover it with kitchen wrap. Allow to rise until doubled in size (1 to 1-1/2 hours). (At this point if you want to use it the next day, or up to a week later, put it in a refrigerator
Put the dough on a lightly floured surface, put a bit of flour on top and make it into the shape of a pie by stretching it out from the center outwards. Use a rolling pin until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick. Punch some holes in the dough with a fork to let the air escape while the pizza is in the oven. Bake the pizza in you oven at 400 - 450 degrees F for about 20 to 25 minutes until the crust is light brown.
