Nola Pizza Dough

Basic Dough:
1 tablespoon yeast
1 cup warm water (110 degrees)
1/4 cup olive oil
3 to 4 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
In an electric mixer bowl, whisk the olive oil, yeast and water together until the yeast is dissolved and the mixture becomes frothy. Add the flour and salt and mix, using a dough hook, until the dough comes away from the sides and crawls up the dough hook. Remove the dough from the bowl. Grease the bowl with olive oil and place the dough back in the bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise until double in size, about an hour. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and divide dough into four ounce portions. Roll the dough into balls, cover and let the dough rest for 15 to 20 minutes. The dough is ready to be shaped into four individual pizzas. Press the dough out for two pizzas.
