Pizza Fritta

Basic Pizza Dough

Makes approximately 2 14inch pizzas or 10-12 mini (pizza frittas)


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 TBS Vegetable Oil
½ tsp sugar
1 cup warm water


In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes.

In a food processor, combine flour and salt. Pulse until mixed. Add yeast mixture and oil. Pulse until a ball is formed. You may need to drizzle in some more flour or water to get it formed into a ball. Scrape dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for several minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Allow dough to rest for 2 to 3 minutes.

Shape into ball and place dough in bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise for
1-3 hours in a warm, dry place, or on the kitchen table covered with a heavy towel overnight as my mother and grandparents did.
