I stole this from the internet. But it’s still my favourite* pizza dough recipe!

1 cup warm water
2 Tbs honey
1 tsp salt
1 Tbs sugar
package of yeast
3 cups flour
2 Tbs olive oil
1/4 cup water

Add yeast to 1/4 cup of water.
Mix water, honey, salt and sugar.
Add yeast to mixture.
Add 1 cup of flour and olive oil
Add rest of flour: knead for 1 minute.
Rest 45 minutes in warm spot.
Punch down.
Rest 15 minutes.

Freezes well (add a bit of olive oil to ziploc bag). Makes two pretty good size pizzas.

As I said, I got this one off the internet and basically taught myself the intricacies of dough by trial and error. Actually I still rarely have it turn out the same way twice in a row, but it is very forgiving: that’s why I like the recipe.

NB Spring 2020 — I’ve moved on. I rarely use this recipe any more. These days if I am working ahead I use my NYC style dough recipe and make a few batches to sit in the fridge, or if I am making pizza that evening I will stick with Ricardo’s recipe.
