Pizza Dough for Grilling


1 (1/4 oz.) package active dry yeast
1 3/4 to 2 cups flour
3/4 cup warm water (105° to 115°F)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 tablespoon olive oil


1. Stir yeast, 1 tablespoon flour, 1/4 cup warm water. Let stand 5 minutes until creamy.

2. Stir together 1 1/4 cups flour and salt. Add yeast mixture, oil, and remaining 1/2 cup water and stir until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour (1/4 to 1/2 cup) for dough to come away from the side of the bowl.

3. Knead dough approzimately 8 minutes. Divide dough in half, dust with flour, and place in bowls. Cover dough and let rise until doubled in size, approximately 1 1/4 hours.
