Pizza Dough

I like to mix my pizza dough completely in one bowl, even kneading in the bowl. (That's a trick I learned from my grandma.)



1/4 cup warm water

1/2  package (1 1/8 teaspoons) active dry yeast

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups of flour

2/3 cup of very warm water 



Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of very warm water. Set aside.


Measure 2 cups flour into a large mixing bowl.


Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the flour. Mix well.


Add dissolved yeast to the flour mixture and stir. The yeast will be in little clumps, that's fine.


Pour in the 2/3 cup of very warm water and stir. Add enough additional flour (not much) to make a firm dough.


Knead dough in the bowl for 5 - 7 minutes. (Keep your hands well-floured so they don’t get sticky!)


Add a little bit of olive oil (1 teaspoon) to the bowl. Turn the dough over. Cover with waxed paper or a wet kitchen towel. Let rise for one hour.  You can also use the dough right away. The longer you let it rise, the fluffier your Cheesy Pizza Bombs will be.
