Recipe Ingredients for Jen's pizza crust

7 serving Food You Feel Good About All Purpose Flour
0.5 cup (8 fl oz) Water
3 tsp Yeast
4 serving Olive Oil

Recipe Directions for Jen's pizza crust

  1. Add the olive oil and salt to the flour and mix them up in a bowl. Add the water (warmed), then the yeast. Mix with a wooden spoon until incorporated, then use your hands.

  2. If the mixture is too dry, add water a teaspoon at a time so it's not over done. If the dough is too sticky, add flour pinch at a time.

  3. Flour a pastry board or flat surface and roll the dough out. Its shouldn't stick. Once the consistency is there, knead for about a minute, ball up the dough, put it in a bowl with a little olive oil spread around the inside and cover it with a towel or saran wrap. Let rise for about 45 minutes to an hour.

  4. Stretch out dough to desired size and thickness. You may need more of the ingredients if you want thicker crust.

  5. As it turns out, the secret is to pour the cornmeal on the surface before beginning to form the crust. Next put the dough down on the surface and begin to form the pizza crust. I find the best technique is to stretch the dough out with my fingers and palm until it's the size I want it. Voila! That lovely cornmeal texture is conquered as the cornmeal is ingrained to the underside of the crust.

  6. For best results, blind bake the crust on a pizza stone (or grill...yum) for about 4 minutes at 450 degrees before adding toppings.

  7. Enjoy!
