The Best Pizza Dough

Ingredients

Pizza Dough
1 package yeast
500 grams bread flour
1 ounce olive oil
10 grams raw sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preparation

1
Dissolve yeast in warm water (as per directions)
2
Mix together flour, water, olive oil, sugar and salt
3
Then add activated yeast
4
Knead dough until it reaches a smooth elastic texture and does not stick to your hands or the board (about 5 to 10 minutes)
5
Place dough in well oiled bowl (large enough for dough to double in size)
6
Cover bowl with plastic and put in warm place for 3 hours to rise
7
After 3 hours punch dough down and separate into 2 (for large pizzas) or 4 (for personal sized) equal balls.
8
Cover the dough balls with a sprinkling of flour, cover with plastic wrap and allow to double in size again (about 1 hour)
9
After 1 hour work each ball of dough out into pizza shape (take your time with the dough, don't rush it or you'll rip the dough)
