Homemade New York Style Pizza
For the crust
- 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast (follow package instructions)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup very warm water (120°F-130°F)
- 3 tablespoons corn oil (I used Mazola)
For the toppings
- 1/2 to 1 cup pizza sauce
- 1 to 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup pepperoni
- Add other toppings, if desired
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add very warm water and oil. (Note: Water should be heated to 120°F-130°F and always use a thermometer to check temperature.) Mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.
- Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Let dough rest at this point for 10 minutes.
- Pat dough with floured hands to fill greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough. Spread with pizza sauce. Top with cheese and pepperoni. Add other toppings, if desired.
- Bake on lowest oven rack for 12-15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.
