This makes 2 pizza crusts.
1/2 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
1 1/4 cups room temperature water
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Place the warm water in a bowl. Sprinkle and mix in the yeast and let sit until the yeast is dissolved. Stir in the room temperature water and oil.
Combine the bread flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Slowly add in the liquid mixture with a flat beater. Mix on a low speed until the dough comes together. Stop the mixer and replace the flat beater with a dough hook. Knead for about 5 minutes, or until the dough is smooth.
Oil a large bowl, form the dough into a ball, and let the dough rise in the oiled bowl until it has doubled in size for about 90-120 minutes.
Once the dough has risen, roll out and divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Use 1/2 of the dough to make 1 pizza.
