Easy Pizza Dough!

You will need:
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 1/3 cups warm water
3 3/4 cups unbleached bread flour or whole wheat
1 tbs fresh olive oil
1 tbs sea salt
1 tbs sugar for Chicago style puffy crust

Combine the yeast and the warm water in a large bowl.
Let stand for 5 – 10 minutes until yeast is dissolved and is starting to foam up.

Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Mix until it’s all holding together.
Turn the out dough onto lightly floured surface and knead for 8-9 minutes.
The dough should be smooth and elastic, tacky, not sticky!

Transfer it over to a bowl with the olive oil and turn the dough over to coat completely.
Cover with clean and floured cotton dish towel and let rise near the oven it’s about doubled in volume.

Punch the dough down and divide it in half.
Roll your dough into a ball and let it rest, covered, for about 10-15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 470F. Dust your baking stone or baking sheet with cornmeal which is important to do this for a crispier crust.
Now roll it out flat. Shape and load with your favourite toppings. Bake until edges turn golden about 15/ 20 minutes. Pierce dough bubbles.
Try this on a stone in your BBQ.
Enjoy!
