  1. Add yeast to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.

  2. Allow yeast to bloom - about 5 minutes

    If the yeast doesn't bloom, check the temperature of your water and try again.
  3. Add salt, flour and vital wheat gluten to the bowl

  4. Turn mixer on low speed

  5. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  6. Increase speed of mixer to medium

  7. Mix until dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl

  8. Cover bowl and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size - about 1 hour

    I use a dough proofer set to 82°F for about 45 minutes.
  9. Place dough on well-floured surface and punch down to remove air

  10. cut dough in half

  11. using your fist, push dough into the shape you want

    Each half will make about a 14" circle suitable for pizza
