How to Make True New York Style Pizza Dough
- In a large bowl - Dissolve sugar and salt in water.
Add oil and flour and stir with a heavy spoon for 1 minute.
- Turn out to a lightly floured surface and press into a circle.
Sprinkle yeast evenly over dough and knead for 12 minutes.
- Divide into portions for calzones or pizza. You will need to weigh these for correct portion size. See notes.
Portions are as follows:
Calzones: 6 oz portions
12 inch pizza: 18 oz portions
15 inch pizza: 25 oz portions
- Roll each portion into a ball. You want a ball without visible seams.
Place balls in a bowl covering with saran wrap and allow to proof for 1-2 hours at room temperature if using dough the same day.
Or.. refrigerate for next day use and allow to get to room temperature counts as proofing.
