When I tell people that I make my own pizza dough, they think I'm crazy. However this homemade dough is so fast and easy to make. No waiting for hours for the dough to rise or kneading till your arms are sore.
All you need is a food processor (one that holds at least 4 cups). This recipe makes one large crust or you can divide it to make several small ones.
1 package active dry yeast 1 teaspoon of sugar 2/3 cup warm water (about 110 degrees) 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons olive oil Oil for pan 1-1/2 tablespoons cornmeal for pan
Preheat over to 425 degrees.
Add oil through feed tube and process for about 1 minute. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour to release the dough from the bowl.
Roll the dough out on a floured surface into desired shape.
Lightly oil baking pan and dust with the cornmeal. Lay the rolled out dough on top of the cornmeal
For Regular Pizza:
Bake for 6 minutes, take the pizza out of over, top with your favorite toppings, then bake for another 18 minutes until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown
For a Stromboli or Calzone:
Add your favorite fillings to one half of the dough. Fold the empty half over to cover and pinch ends to seal. Using a knife, make a couple slits in the top to let the steam escape. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
