     PIZZA-DOUGH-1 - Simple pizza dough

     I don't remember where I learned this simple recipe for
     pizza dough.  It makes enough dough for two 12x18 pan piz-
     zas. I like it because it is so easy to memorize and it
     makes good pizzas.

INGREDIENTS (2 pizza crusts)
     5 cups    flour
     2 pkgs    active dry yeast
     2 Tbsp    sugar
     2 tsp     salt
     2 cups    water

          (1)  Mix all of the dry ingredients first, then add the
               water.  It will appear to be too dry. Do not add
               water.  Keep working the dough until it is smooth.
               (This requires a little faith but it really

          (2)  Let the dough rise once (approx 1 hour). Punch it
               down and knead again.

          (3)  At this point you may choose to freeze some of the
               dough.  If you do freeze it, be sure to wrap it
               well and freeze it quickly.  With either fresh or
               thawed dough, let the dough rise a second time.

          (4)  After it has risen, punch it down and use it for
               your pizza. The dough will rise a little while you
               put the rest of your pizza toppings on it.  Then
               bake as appropriate for pizza thickness and top-

     I have tried variations like whole wheat, and just about any
     flour combination that works for bread works for pizza

     Difficulty: easy.  Time: 20 minutes preparation, 2 hours
     rising.  Precision: measure the ingredients.
