1 package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp salt
1-1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
In bowl of mixer with dough hook attachment….
Combine yeast, water, olive oil and salt, stir well. Let set for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes add half of the flour to you mixing bowl with dough hook on speed 2 mix until incorporated. Add rest of flour and continue on speed 2 until a smooth elastic ball has formed. Turn dough in a lightly oiled bowl and flip dough once, Cover with a damp tea towel and let rise at least 2 hours.
Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and form into four balls. Let rest 15 minutes on lightly oiled baking sheet.
Roll into 4 six inch circles. Fill half of the circle with whatever toppings you like and lots of cheese. Fold other half of the circle over and crimp with a fork.
Bake in a preheated 475 degree oven for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown. I like to enjoy mine with marinara sauce to dip in. ENJOY!! 🙂
