Master Dough - Instructions

In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast with the water and sugar. Add the corn oil and
blend. Add the flour and salt and mix thoroughly. If using a stand mixer, mix for 4
minutes at medium speed, until the dough is smooth and pliable. If kneading by hand,
knead for 7 to 8 minutes. Turn the dough out of the bowl and knead by hand for two
additional minutes. Add olive oil to a deep bowl. Place the dough ball into the bowl
and turn it twice to coat it with the oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a
kitchen towel.* Let the dough rise for two hours. Do not punch it down. Spread and
push the dough ball across the bottom of the pan.

*At this stage the dough can be put in the refrigerator and allowed to rise slowly
over night. Take the dough out of the refrigerator at least an hour before you are
ready to assemble the pizza.
