  • Mix 2 cups all-purpose flour, bread flour, corn oil, and salt together in a bowl; add yeast mixture and knead on a work surface using about 1/2 all-purpose flour until well mixed. Let dough rise in a warm area until doubled in size; about 2 hours.

To cook dough, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Punch dough down and spread into a 16-inch pan. Top dough with cheese, sauce, and toppings. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

2/3 cup water for 3 cups + flour is not enough. Maybe 1 2/3 cups? Read More

The only thing I changed was the quantity of sugar. I used a maximum of 2 Tablespoons. I believe the other flour and oil quantities are not a necessity. I used a total of 3 cups of flour/bread flour. I found the 1/4 cup oil and 2/3 cup water sufficient. Minus a buttery taste this makes me think of the old Chicago style deep dish pizza. I cooked my dough in a cast iron skillet but prefer my own recipe. Read More
