1 package active dry yeast (7gm/ 1/4 oz)

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)

2 1/2 to 3 cups flour, plus more if necessary

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

In a small bowl, combine yeast with water, salt and stir well .After 5 minutes, transfer to the bowl of a food processor along with flour, salt, and olive oil and process until the dough forms a ball. The dough should be soft but not sticky. If it is too sticky, add a bit more flour and process for another minute.

Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead dough for 2 to 3 minutes, adding enough additional flour if necessary to form a smooth and elastic dough. Dough should not be sticky. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled 2 or 3 quart bowl and turn to coat dough with oil.

Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.Divide dough into 2 portions (for 2 (12-inch) pizzas) and form into balls. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and cover with a damp towel. Let rest for 15 minutes, then transfer to a lightly floured surface, shape as desired and roll out to a thickness of 1/2-inch.Transfer to a pizza pan and bake for 4-5 minutes. Remove and add choice of toppings.
