Pizza Dough Recipe

I am listing this as a dough recipe because the topping is really up to your preference. You simply pick and choose from anything that you have at home and make that perfect pizza that your family loves.

I have tried several different pizza dough recipes. I love this one the most for the simplicity of preparation and the texture of the dough. This recipe comes from an "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" book.

This pizza dough can be stored in a fridge for up to a week or frozen for a few months.

Instructions 

Dough
In a large (6 quart) bowl, using a wooden spoon or a stand up mixer, mix yeast, salt, sugar, olive oil and water.
To the ingredients, mix in flour. There is no need to knead the dough, just be sure that all flour is mixed in.
Cover the bowl with plastic and let the dough rise for about two hours.
Building Pizza
Roll out the dough to the thickness of your preference. Layer with sauce, cheese and your favorite toppings. See pictures for topping ideas. Bake pizza at preheated oven to 450F, bake for 15-20 min or until golden brown.
Freezing dough
Because this recipe makes four pizzas, I prefer to freeze a part of the dough for later. After the dough rises, cut it into four pieces and wrap it tight into plastic. Place the wrapped dough inside a ziploc bag; remove air out the the bag, seal and freeze.
