Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope regular active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Favorite pizza toppings, as desired

Steps

  • 1
    In bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook, or in large bowl if you plan to knead by hand, mix 2 cups of the flour, the yeast and salt.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat honey, water and olive oil over medium-low heat 3 to 4 minutes or until honey is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour into bowl of dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
  • 3
    With mixer on low speed, begin adding the remaining flour 1/4 cup at a time until dough clears the bowl and is only slightly sticky to the touch. You may not need all 4 cups of the flour. Continue to knead dough 5 to 7 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
  • 4
    Place dough in greased bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 5
    Gently punch down dough, and knead by hand a few times. Let rest 10 minutes.
  • 6
    Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Divide dough in half; roll each half into 10-inch circle. Transfer to cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise while you heat oven to 450°F.
  • 7
    Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until puffed and top appears dry but not at all browned. Cool completely.
  • 8
    Top as desired, then double wrap in plastic wrap. Store in freezer up to 2 months.
  • 9
    When ready to bake, remove from freezer and remove plastic wrap. Place on cookie sheet lined with cooking parchment paper, and bake at 450°F 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.

  • It is important to let the dough rest before rolling it out. This gives it time to relax, making it easier to roll out.
