Directions

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the yeast, lukewarm water, and 1/2 cup bread flour. Mix well and let sit until bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Whisk together the remaining 3 1/2 cups bread flour and salt in another bowl so it will be evenly distributed.

Once the yeast mixture is nice and bubbly and looks like foamy beer, add 3/4 cup cold water and olive oil. Using a dough hook, turn the mixer on and add the flour in increments.

Mix the dough for about 5 minutes, until the dough starts creeping up the dough hook and comes away from the sides of the bowl.

Place the dough in a large bowl lightly greased with olive oil. Turn to coat all sides of the dough with oil. Cover the bowl loosely with a clean tea towel. Let rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours. Punch dough down, and let rise another hour.

Divide the dough into 4 equal disks. Lightly flour a work surface. Using your fingers or heels of your hands (and a rolling pin, if you prefer) stretch the disks out to a 10-inch round.

Repeat with the remaining 3 pizza dough disks.

    I've been trying to find a pizza dough recipe since I moved down here in the Florida Keys, I'm from Philly and the NE area of the country, so we know what good bread and pizza is! After at least 4 different pizza shops and 20 + recipes my search for a good dough was about exhausted, until I made this recipe. I thought I would have to wait for my pizza urges to be subject to substandard quality, (because for some weird reason the state of Fl. are only able to make Cuban bread. Well thank the bread Gods and you guys that came up with this recipe! I'm back in action making pizza and on of my fav's a Cheese Steak Stromboli that came out just incredible! I can't thank you enough!
