1 package dry yeast
1/4 cup water
2 1/4 cups warm water
6 tablespoons olive oil, + extra for pans
6 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt


Dissolve yeast in warm water (105 degrees F is perfect). Let it sit for two minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Turn out onto board and knead for ten minutes. Place back in bowl covered with a damp towel and let rise 30 to 40 minutes.

Divide dough into 3 parts and place in 3 olive-oiled pie pans.

Dimple dough with fingers. Place on top the following mixture: Coarse sea (or Kosher) salt, fresh ground pepper, chopped rosemary and thyme. If herbs are dried, soak them in water for 10 minutes and then pat dry on paper towels.

Let rise 50 to 60 minutes.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. May dip in olive oil.

Lynnb62, the reason water is listed twice is because you dissolve the yeast in 1/4 cup warm water, and then the remaining water is mixed in with the other ingredients. Sugar is not needed for the yeast, it will munch on the flour.

recipe seems a little odd in that there are 2 ingredient listings for water. Could the 1/4 cup water ingredient be sugar?

I made this and it turned out except the yeast needs sugar or honey to activate it. Once I added a small amount of sugar to activate the yeast it turned our great!

I think what the reviewer meant was that s/he left out the step that suggested herbs and kosher salt being applied to the surface of the bread--not the salt in the bread dough itself!

My first attempt at homemade pizza crust and it went over without a hitch. I would rate it at 2 for difficulty. I used this recipe for a pizza crust, leaving out the salt and spice step, and just proceeded with pizza toppings. It was loved by the whole family!

Salt is actually a necessary ingredient when using yeast. Its purpose is to "control" the yeast. You may have ended up with a different texture this way - but if it worked for you - wonderful!!
