Pizza Dough

Yield Makes 1/2 pound dough, enough for 1 thin crust

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • Olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Dissolve honey and yeast in 1/2 cup warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Add salt and 1 cup flour to yeast mixture, and stir until a soft dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 6 minutes). Add enough of the remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands. Place dough in a large bowl coated with olive oil; turn to coat dough. Cover and chill 1 hour.
