Jay’s Signature Pizza Crust

"Just being aware of what you are about to do greatly diminishes the tendency to do what you don't want to. You will pull your hand back from that pizza slice, tell the waitress that you are passing on dessert, put on your gym shoes instead of going under the comforter, and take several deep breaths instead of screaming at your daughter."

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cups warm water 110 degrees F/45 degrees C
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • ½ teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour divided

Instructions
 

  • Stir together warm water, yeast, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl; let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Stir oil and salt into yeast mixture. Mix in 2 1/2 cups flour until incorporated.
  • Turn dough out onto a clean, floured surface. Knead dough, adding remaining flour, a little at a time, until dough is no longer sticky. Place dough into an oiled bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough and form it into a tight ball. Allow dough to relax for 1 minute before rolling out.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • If baking dough on a pizza stone, place toppings on dough and bake immediately. If baking dough on a pan, lightly oil the pan and let dough rise for 15 to 20 minutes before topping and baking it.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
