Homemade Pizza Dough step by step

  1. My tap water on high is always perfect for the yeast. I let it run in measuring cup to warm the cup itself. Then I dispose enough water to have 1 1/2 Cups left. **(Of course water temp varies by household, so how ever you heat yours, just keep it under 115 degrees and you will be fine.)**.
  2. Pour warm water in a mixing bowl. Add yeast and Sugar. Mix well with a spoon. Let rest until it foams. About 2 minutes..
  3. Attach dough hook. Pour in the flour. Turn mixer on medium, add salt and (3) Tbsp Olive Oil..
  4. Continue kneading a few minutes. If it is to wet and it should be, then add 1 Tbsp of flour at a time to the dough while it kneads. Your goal is a moist sticky dough. Not dry, so it needs to be sticking to the bottom of bowl as it kneads just a little, about half dollar size on bottom then you know it's perfect. Let knead for about 3 more minutes..
  5. Let rise for about 30 minutes covered with a towel..
  6. Remove towel, knead in mixer again until it forms ball..
  7. Remove dough, place in a large plastic container. At least a gallon or more. Put plastic wrap on top loosely..
  8. This step is what makes this pizza dough stand out. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. After 6 hours, take dough out of the container, place on counter, punch down devide into 2 and roll into 2 balls. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap and place back into the refrigerator. This makes the dough more stretchy, pliable with out ripping..
  9. Take dough out of the refrigerator. It's your call to let it warm up a while at room temp or not. I use it both ways, but letting it rest at room temperature an hour works for me well. Makes 2 pizzas or one really large and thick. I bake pizza on a preheated stone, works well. Enjoy!.
