- 1 pkg. yeast
- 3 cups flour
- 1/3 cups lukewarm water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup lukewarm water
Dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup lukewarm water and let stand 10 minutes. In a bowl, mix flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture, blend, then add 2/3 cup lukewarm water to make a pliable, elastic dough. Form into a ball, cover with a clean cloth, and let rise until doubled in a warm place (about 20- 30 minutes).
Variations: Add 4 tsp basil for a more flavorful crust. Kneed in 4 Tbsp. margarine for a more pastry-like crust. Vary these quantities according to your taste.
Roll out dough onto pizza stone or a flat pan; leave a lip around the edge. (Variation: Top with olive oil.) Spread sauce, add toppings of your choice. Bake at 450 degrees F for about 20 minutes, until crisp.
