Makes about 4 servings
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total preparation time: 45 minutes
2 to 2 1/2 cups unsifted, unbleached all-purpose flour
One 1/4-ounce package quick-rising yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Combine 1 3/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Add 3/4 cup very warm water (120 to 130 F) and the oil; process until a soft dough forms. Add as much of the remaining flour, 1/4 cup at time, as necessary to make the dough manageable.
Shape the dough in a ball and place in an oiled bowl, turning so an oiled surface is up. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 35 minutes. Use as directed in a recipe.

Thank you so so much !! Donna Hammons @ Grovespring, Missouri
Everything I have read says plain old water works just fine.
Sara! This is a fabulous recipe! We make it once a week & add fresh tomatoes & basil from our garden. Yum!!! Thanks for the simple & tasty dough!!
Great thin pizza dough. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer for the dough instead of my food processor and it was so perfect. This dough rolled out great with putting the oil on the rolling pen as suggested for easy roll out. Great tip. The crust was crisp and thin which is what we like in my family. This recipe is a keeper for home made pizza. I also used this dough for three medium size calzones too and they were very tasty!
Absolutely love Sara’s recipes. Always easy and extremely tasty. Thank you..
