Recipe Ingredients for Quick-Rising Pizza Dough

4 cups flour, all-purpose white
1/4 cup flour
2 packages yeast, Rapid-Rise
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 3/4 cups water
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for Quick-Rising Pizza Dough

  1. Stir together 3 cups flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Combine water and oil in a small saucepan. Heat until hot to the touch, 125 to 130F. Gradually stir the oil and water mixture into the flour mixture with a wooden spoon. Beat until well mixed. Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a firm, soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 8 to 10 minutes. Cover with plastic and let rest for 10 minutes. (Alternatively, in a food processor, combine 4 cups flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Heat 1 1/2 cups water and oil to 125 to 130F. With the motor running, gradually add the hot liquid. Process, adding up to 2 tablespoons cold water until the dough forms a ball, then process for 1 minute to knead. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, cover with plastic and let rest for 10 minutes.)
