Directions

Add the water to a bowl. Then add the yeast a little at a time and break up the cube of yeast with your hands. Cook's Note: You can also use yeast in the powder form. Let the yeast fully dissolve in the warm water and let stand for 2 minutes.

Add the flour on a smooth work surface and create a well in the center of the flour. Slowly add the yeast-water mixture, olive oil, and salt until the flour has absorbed the liquid. Knead the dough until the mixture becomes an even dough consistency. If necessary, add a little more flour to absorb any excess liquid.

Divide the dough into 4 equal portions to make individual-size pizzas. Place on a lightly-floured surface or pan and cover with a cloth. Let rest for about an hour at room temperature or until the dough has doubled in size.

    Love that this recipe is old world hands on and not designed for a food processor. Makes me feel like I'm in Italy (okay, maybe not in Italy but at least closer to Italy than NC. The olive oil in the dough adds to the flavor and I really like the way that David uses less salt than most. It helps keep the dough from fighting it out with the toppings for attention. Great recipe. Thanks David!
