My Favorite Pizza Dough Recipe
When you are ready to use the dough, take it out of the fridge and turn the oven on to 475 degrees F with a pizza stone preheating in it.
Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Flour a work surface and pat out the dough with your fingertips into a pizza-shape. Let rest 5 or 10 minutes and then roll with a rolling pin from the center outwards.
Make dimples with your fingertips in the crust to avoid air bubbles while baking. Brush with olive oil and top with toppings. Slide onto pizza stone (sprinkle w flour or cornmeal right before sliding on pizza). Bake for 12 minutes. I don't have a pizza peel so I use parchment paper on top of a wooden cutting board with flour dustings to roll out the dough and then slide onto the stone.
