1/4 package active dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbls. sugar
2/3 cup warm water 110-115 degrees
1/4 cup canola oil (substitute olive oil)
2 cups all purpose flour
Place yeast, salt, sugar and water in blender. Pulse for 10 seconds. Add the oil and flour 1 cup at a time, pulsing until dough is smooth and no lumps remain. Transfer dough to lightly oiled bowl and cover. Let rest for 1 hour. If you are making a high rise pizza dough, punch down and let rise again for another 45 minutes. If not, eliminate second rising and spread dough onto a pizza pan or baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray. Add sauce and toppings and bake at 425 degrees in oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned and toppings and cheese are hot.
