The Perfect Pizza Dough
3/4 cup (175 mL) warm water (100°F/38°C)
1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar
1 pkg (8 g) instant yeast
2 tbsp (25 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1 3/4 cups (425 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
All-purpose flour, optional*
Combine warm water and sugar, stirring to dissolve. Sprinkle yeast on top. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir yeast mixture. Drizzle in oil and stir to combine. Place 1 3/4 cups (425 mL) flour and salt in a food processor fitted with a dough blade; process to combine. Add yeast mixture and process just until dough comes together and forms a ball, about 1 minute. Dough will be soft. If dough is too sticky, add additional flour, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, and process until dough comes together and forms a ball. Using greased hands, shape dough into a ball. Dough may be prepared to this point and frozen in an airtight container. If frozen, thaw dough in refrigerator before proceeding. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl; turn dough to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap. Let stand for 5 minutes if fresh and 15 minutes if thawed from frozen before rolling out.
Yield: Makes enough dough for 1 large or 2 small pizza(s).
