Author Notes: This idea came to me in a pinch as a way to doctor up a plain frozen cheese pizza with frozen stir fry mix. Since then we make it fresh with home made dough and custom stir-fry mix. —Derek Heeb
Basic Pizza Dough (two pizzas)
- 1 packet active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1&1/2 cups lukewarm water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups flouer
- Mix yeast with brown sugar and add lukewarm water. Let stand for 10 minutes.
- Add olive oil, then flour and knead until dough is smooth, elastic and not sticky. Add flour as needed while kneading.
- Rub a large mixing bowl with olive oil. Make dough into ball and lace in bowl. Cover with dish towel and let rise for one hour. Begin preparing toppings while you wait.
- After dough has roughly doubled in size, punch down once with fist and let stand for another 10 minutes.
