Jim Lahey's Pizza Recipe

This was our first attempt to try making pizza from scratch!

Jim Lahey's Recipe for the pizza dough is:
+3.5 cups Bread Flour
+2.5 teaspoons of instant or other active dry yeast
+3/4 teaspoon table salt
+3/4 teaspoon plus a pinch of sugar
+1.5 cups room-temperature (about 72 degrees F) water
+olive oil for the pans
These ingredients are enough for two medium sized pizzas.

The key is to put the dough in a bowl and cover with saran wrap,
then let it rise for about 2 hours,
and then split the dough into half and cover it with a moist paper towel
and let it sit for another 30 minutes.
We were SUPER hungry so we cut down the initial 2 hours to about 1.5,
and for the first pizza we skipped the extra 30 minutes.

Bake it in the oven at 500 degrees for about 20-30 minutes,
depending on the thickness of the crust and what you put on top...
