Quick Pizza Dough

Food-Processor Pizza Dough
Yields 2 12-inch pizza crusts

1 c warm water
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
3 c all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil

Stir together water, yeast and sugar until dissolved. Set aside.

In food processor, place flour and salt and blend. Stir 2 tbsp oil into yeast mixture.

With the motor running add yeast mixture through the feed tube. You may need add a little extra water to get the dough to stick real well. Allow the dough to go around the bowl until the dough clings together, about 20 to 30 times.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and kneed until dough is smooth and elastic, 5 to 6 times.

Cut dough into 2 equal pieces. Form each piece into a round disk and let rest for 10 minutes. Or you can opt for 1 large pizza.

With a floured rolling pin, roll out the disk into a 12 inch circle.

Then place pizza dough onto pizza pan and add sauce and toppings.

Cook @ 450 degrees for about 10 min or until cheese melts and crust is golden.
