Pizza Dough
A perfect dough recipe to use for pizza or calzones.
2/3 cup lukewarm water
1 pinch sugar
1 1 2/ teaspoons dry yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups unbleached white flour, plus a bit more, as needed
1 teaspoon salt
1. By hand: Stir together 1/3 cup water and the sugar in a large bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over this mixture and let it stand until it is foamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in the remaining 1/3 cup water, olive oil and 2 cups flour and salt. Blend with a large spoon until the contents form a dough. Knead the dough on a floured surface, incorporating more flour if necessary, to keep the dough from sticking. knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 5 to 10 minutes.

To make the dough in a food processor with a plastic dough blade or in a heavy-duty mixer, proof the yeast as described but use a small bowl. Then combine the yeast mixture with the olive oil, 2 cups flour and salt in the processor or mixer. If you are using a processor, run it until the mixture forms a ball, adding more water or flour by the tablespoon if the dough is too dry or wet. Process for 15 seconds more. if you are using a mixer, use the hook attachment, and mix the dough on the lowest speed until a ball is formed, adding a bit more water or flour as necessary. Knead the dough in the mixer for 5 minutes.

2) Put the dough into a deep, oiled bowl, and turn to coat it with the oil. let the dough rise, covered with plastic wrap in a warm place for 1 hour or until it is doubled in bulk. Punch down the dough and form it into four balls. Each will make a serving size pizza.
