I know everyone has what they love, but this is what we do!
2 1/2 cups warm water
1 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
7 cups flour (I use a combo of whole wheat and all-purpose)
Let yeast soften in warm water for a few minutes. Add sugar and salt, the yeast should bloom (sort of like little explosions of yeast erupting at the top of the water). Next add the oil and flour. I like to use about half and half whole wheat and all-purpose flour, sometimes I'll do more wheat for my family and sometimes I do more all-purpose if I'm serving it for others.
I mix it up in my kitchen aid with the dough hook. I beat it for 3-4 minutes. Divide it into 2 balls and let rest for a few minutes while I prep the rest of my pizza toppings.
Bake at 425 for 20 minutes.
