IntroductionThis is enough dough for 9- 8 inch crusts. Averaged to 8 pieces per pizza. So nutrition is per piece. 72 servings. This is enough dough for 9- 8 inch crusts. Averaged to 8 pieces per pizza. So nutrition is per piece. 72 servings.
2 Tablespoons yeast
2 Tablespoons sugar
2.5 cups warm water
2 tsp salt
3 Tablespoons oil (canola or olive oil)
5-6 cups flour
optional- 1 TBLS basil or oregano
Press or roll dough into 8 inch circles and then rub with olive oil. Sprinkle the top with salt and oregano. Cook in a 10 inch cast iron skillet on high for several minutes (until it bubbled) flipping until both sides are golden brown (not cooked through). Topped as desired and then put it in the oven (directly on the rack) at 500 degrees (not a typo) until the cheese is melted. Then you don't get a soggy crust.
If you only want to make one pizza make up all the crusts and then freeze them with waxed paper between them in a gallon ziploc bag. Then you can pull them out and top them for a quick meal. I've also topped them and then frozen them for homemade frozen pizza.
Number of Servings: 72

Can you freeze the dough? A lot to make for one person. - 4/27/09

YES- I should have included this. I usually make it for my family of 6 and make up half the dough and freeze the other half. Generally I'll make it into crusts- par bake them and then freeze them. I added directions to the bottom of the recipe.
