Quick and Easy Pizza Dough


It seems almost too simple and fast to be true, but with only 5 minutes of ‘resting or rising’ time, it turns out just as delicious as dough that needs to rise for an hour or more.

Pizza dough:
1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 c. warm water
2 1/2 c. flour, white or wheat
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water and stir in remaining ingredients. beat vigorously 20 strokes, or use a mixer. Let rest only 5 minutes. Then with floured hands, roll out and shape into pizza crust.

Bake pizza on parchment paper and a pizza stone or an insulated cookie sheet at 425 for 15-20 minutes.
