Homemade Pizza Dough
Everyone needs a go-to recipe for homemade pizza dough. A great way to use up some leftover meat, a lone piece of fruit, and of course - cheese! If you have time start the dough in the morning, knead at lunch time, and cook for dinner.
1 cup warm water
1 tbps dry active yeast
2 tbsp honey
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
Mix water, yeast and honey in the bowl of an electric mixer and let sit for 5 minutes. Note: this can easily be made without a mixer - you'll just be doing the kneading by hand!
Add flour, oil and salt and knead 10 minutes. Cover and sit in a warm place and let rise for a few hours. Re-knead another 5-10 minutes. Let rise again for a few hours.
Divide dough in half for two large pizzas. Roll out onto a pizza pan or stone. Top with a small amount of sauce, grated cheese and your favourite toppings.
