Alger Family Homemade Pizza

1 Cup plus 2 tbs. warm water
2 1/4 tsp. dry yeast
pinch of sugar
3 C. flour (may need more, may need less)
1 1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil

In glass measuring cup measure water, add yeast and pinch of sugar. Let stand till yeast begins to foam. Stir to dissolve. While yeast is standing, combine flour and salt in mixer. Add oil to yeast mixture and slowly add to flour mixture while mixing.

Mix until smooth and turn out onto floured surface. Let rise in covered bowl 20-30 min. (you may wait until doubled if desired. We like the density of the bread without waiting for the dough to rise).

 Roll out onto pan of choice. Dough makes two thin crust pizzas, one stuffed crust pizza or one thick crust pizza. You may also get 4 personal pizzas with this dough. Top with sauce, cheese and desired toppings of your choice. Bake at 425 degrees for reg. pizza 15-20 min. or 20-30 min. for calzone or stuffed crust pizza.
