Pizza Dough

This recipe is from my mother-in-law, Momma White.  She makes awesome pizza!  This dough recipe is the best I've ever used, and super easy! It always turns out!

Pizza Dough

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees)

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups all-purpose flour


1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rest in a warm place for 10 minutes.
2. Divide dough in half. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 13-in. circle. Transfer to two greased 12-in. pizza pans; build up edges slightly. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread with sauce; sprinkle with toppings. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

(Variation:  Add Italian Seasoning and/or garlic to the dough!)
