Pizza Dough (Enough for 2)

Can’t make BBQ Chicken Pizza without pizza dough – well, you shouldn’t at least.

Pizza Dough

1 teaspoon instant or active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1-½ cups warm water
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
⅓ cups olive oil

Sprinkle yeast over sugar dissolved in warm water.
Let stand for a few minutes.
In a mixer, combine flour and salt.
With the mixer running on low speed (with paddle attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour.
Next, pour in yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined, and the dough comes together in a sticky mass.
Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, and form the dough into a ball.
Toss to coat dough in olive oil, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and set it aside for 1 to 2 hours, or store in the fridge until you need it.
