2 1/4teaspoonsyeast(1 packet)
1cuphot water(about 115°F)
2 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
Proof the yeast - in a medium mixing bowl, add yeast, hot water, and sugar. Stir together. Let sit for 5 minutes until bubbly.
Add salt and flour gradually, mixing together until combined. Knead using a mixer or by hand for 5 minutes until soft and elastic, adding flour if necessary. If using the olive oil, add to the sides of the bowl using an olive oil or pastry brush.
Cover and let rise in a warm area until doubled, about 30 minutes. (I like to leave it on top of the stove while it's pre-heating.)
Will make two, 12-inch thin crust pizzas. Cook with desired toppings at 475°F for about 12 minutes in a cast iron pan.
