1 package dry yeast dissolved in 1 c. lukewarm water
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 1/2 c. flour
Dissolve the yeast in the water. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add water/yeast mixture and olive oil, stirring to combine. Knead until smooth and well-blended.
Let rise for 10 minutes in a warm place, free from draft.
Spread a few tablespoons of olive oil on a cookie sheet or pizza pan, then pat out the dough on the cookie sheet. Add pizza sauce, cheese and the toppings of your choice. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is lightly browned.
Wendy Says: I always use at least a cup of whole-wheat flour, and the crust is still soft and delicious.
