1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/8 teaspoons (1/8 oz.) instant or rapid-rise dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil


1. Put flour, yeast, sugar and salt into bowl of a food processor and pulse once or twice to mix. Combine oil and 1/2 cup warm water (between 105° and 115°F) in a small glass or measuring cup. With food processor motor running, slowly pour water mixture through feed tube; process until a ball of dough forms. Let it run until dough is smooth, about another minute. Dough should be slightly tacky but not too sticky. If necessary, add a little flour, one tablespoon at a time, and let it run for a little longer.

2. Oil a medium-size mixing bowl. Form dough into a ball and transfer to bowl, turning dough to coat with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel and place in a warm, draft-free spot until dough doubles in size, about 45 minutes.

Whole-wheat option 1. Use 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour. 2. Add 1/2 tsp. honey to the oil-warm water mixture. 3. Proceed with Pizza Dough recipe as written. Per serving: 152 Cal., 2g Fat (0g Sat.), 0mg Chol., 3g Fiber, 5g Pro., 30g Carb., 147mg Sod.
