Pizza Dough

     4 1/2 cups flour
     2 1/2 tsp instant yeast
     1/4 cup oil of choice
     2 tsp salt
     1 Tbsp sugar
     2 cups warm water, you may not need all of it

You will need:
Mixer with dough hook
greased bowl for dough

Place all ingredients except the water in your kitchenaid mixing bowl.

Now turn on lowest setting with the dough hook attachment. Warm the tap water in microwave for approx 30 seconds.

Slowly add warm water until your dough comes together. You may not need all of the water. I had about half a cup left, but the flour you use and the climate you live in can make a difference.

Let your dough knead for a few minutes.

Now place it into a greased bowl, cover and let rise until double. 1-2 hours.

This is my go to pizza dough recipe. It makes enough for two large pizzas or calzones. Why do I love it? Because it makes two. If I donít need both I just freeze one. I love having dough in the freezer. Itís so nice when I need a quick meal idea!
