1 pkg. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
in a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oil, sugar, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth & elastic, about 6-8 minutes. place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. cover & let rest in a warm place for 10 minutes.
divide dough in half. on a floured surface, roll out each portion into a 10-in. circle. transfer to two greased 12-in. pizza pans; build up edges slightly. bake at 425degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
top with your favorite pizza toppings & bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. enjoy!p.s. today is my cousin wendy's (the dream catcher maker) birthday! go wish a great one : )
