Have you ever had one of those recipes that you can use to create tons of different recipes. This recipe is one of the winners!! My friends dad gave this to me many years ago and it has been my go to pizza dough recipe for years. It is one of my favorites and it turns out every time!
The recipe was originally for pizza dough but I have found so many different uses for it over the years. I am going to share the recipe today (super easy I promise) and then over the summer I will share all the things I do with it. Here are some of our favorites:
- Pizza (this recipe makes 3 medium pizzas) with Homemade Sauce (another good one I will be sharing)
- Calzones (so yummy)
- Cinnamon Rolls (amazing)
- Pizza Rolls
- Ham and Cheese Rolls
2 c warm water
2 T sugar
2 t. yeast
1 T. vegetable oil
1 T. salt
4-8 cups all-purpose flour (for cinnamon rolls I use bread flour; not a must but I like it better)
First put water, yeast, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir together and let proof for 15 minutes. (You want to activate the yeast. It will start to bubble and foam.)
Next add vegetable oil, salt, and 4 cups of flour. Mix with dough hook attachment until mixed.
Add additional cups of flour one at a time until dough pulls away from sides of bowl.
Mix for 10 minutes on medium speed once there is enough flour in it. So much easier than kneading by hand.
After its done mixing pour a small amount of vegetable oil over it and roll dough around so it is fully coated.
Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
Now the dough is ready for whatever you want to make!!!
