Pizza Hut: Pizza Dough


Ingredients

Olive oil spray
1 cup warm water (105°–115°F)
1 package (1⁄4 ounce) active dry yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1-1⁄2 cups + 4 tablespoons unbleached flour + additional for work surface
3⁄4 cup bread flour
2 teaspoons salt

Instructions

Lightly mist a mixing bowl with oil spray. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the water, yeast, and sugar. Whisk until the yeast is dissolved.

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the dough blade, or in a mixing bowl, combine 1-1⁄2 cups unbleached flour, the bread flour, and salt. Pulse several times or stir with a wooden spoon to mix. When the yeast mixture starts to bubble, add it to the bowl. Process or stir for about 1 minute, or until a sticky ball forms. If the mixture is too sticky, add up to 4 tablespoons unbleached flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Process or stir until a smooth ball forms. Turn onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead by hand several times, until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place the dough in the reserved bowl. Lightly mist the dough with oil spray. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place. Allow it to rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
