White Flour Pizza Crust

This recipe makes 2 large pizza crusts

2 cups of warm/hot water
2 tsp. of yeast
4 cups of white flour
1/2 tsp. of sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

Dissolve the 2 tsp. of yeast in 2 cups of warm/hot water.

In a large mixing bowl combine 4 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp. sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, and water/yeast mixture. Mix until it forms a dough. Cover with a towel and let rise for 1/2 hour to an hour. Do not add anymore than 4 cups of flour (this keeps the crust from being so dense)

Grease pizza pan. Sprinkle a small amount of flour in the large mixing bowl on top of the dough (so that the dough won't stick to your hands as you pull it out). Pull out about half of the dough, and place it on the pizza pan. Sprinkle a little more flour on top of the dough, and start to push and shape the dough into a pizza crust. Add sauce and toppings.

Put pizza in oven on 500 degrees for 12 minutes.

This is ONE of my family's favorites! The trick is, cooking it at a HIGH temp. We had looked for a good white flour pizza crust recipe for YEARS, and finally found one. I will NEVER try another recipe again. I hope that you try it, and love it as much as we do!
