Pizza Dough

Ingredients::

  • Yeast - 2 tsp
  • Sugar - 1 Tb
  • Water - 1/4 C, very warm
  • Unbleached flour - 2 C
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Oil - 2 Tb
  • Water - 3/4 C

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 475ºF. Mix yeast with sugar and very warm water. Stir with wooden spoon and allow to bubble. Add flour and salt to large bowl; stir well with fork. After yeast is bubbly, about 5 minutes, add oil and 3/4 C water to flour, along with yeast mixture. Knead for a few minutes until elastic and smooth. Cover with a thin coating of vegan butter, and leave in bowl. Cover bowl and allow to rise for an hour or two, until about double in bulk. Remove dough onto cutting board. Roll into ball, then into a flat circle. Move to pre-oiled pizza pan and stretch to fit the edge of the pan. (16″ pan) Allow to sit for a few minutes. Add pizza sauce and toppings. Bake for a few minutes. If using Daiya cheese, add the last five minutes or so – it melts and browns quickly. Printable Recipe
