Making pizza dough is a tactile experience -- you really want to feel it in your hands. This dough recipe makes four 12-inch pizzas; the dough can be made a day ahead. When you mix flour, salt, and yeast, the resulting dough is sticky, so keep hands lightly floured as you work.
What You'll Need:
Lightly flour your work surface and your hands. Slap the dough onto the counter, pulling it toward you with one hand and pushing it away from you with the other. Fold the dough back over itself. Repeat until it's easier to handle, and then knead until smooth, elastic, and soft, but a little tacky, about 10 minutes.
