Directions

Dry Mix
Step 1
Gather the 6 ingredients for the mix. Prepare and mark the zip storage bags.Turn the tops down so the bags stay open and you can get the ingredients in them easily. I also stand the bags in a container to help keep them upright--it helps!
Step 2
Measure these ingredients into each bag. Close each bag and print a copy of this recipe to store with mixes for future preparation instructions. See below.
Preparation
Step 3
Prepare pizza pan by spraying with cooking spray. Put a parchment paper over the sprayed pan and bake on the parchment.
Step 4
Put contents of one prepared mix into the bowl of stand mixer. Add yeast and mix on low to blend. Measure hot water from tap. It should be quite warm. I use an instant temp thermometer to be sure it is hot but not over 110 degrees--this is crucial. Add the oil to the water. Turn on the mixer to low and slowly pour the liquid into the dry ingredients. When the dough pulls away from the sides, turn off the mixer. With a rubber spatula, make sure all the flour in encorporated.
Step 5
Put dough onto the prepared pan. FOR THIN CRUST, this dough can be used immediately. Heat in oven to 425 degrees F. Spread dough to cover pan and prepare with sauce and toppings. When oven reaches temperature place pan in oven. Bake at 425 degrees F for about 15 to 18 minutes. Check to be sure pizza is baking evenly--rotate pan if oven is warmer in the back.
Step 6
FOR A SLIGHTLY THICKER CRUST, cover dough with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with baking spray. Cover plastic with clean kitchen towel and place pan in warm place to rise for about 10 minutes. Remove plastic and put sauce and toppings on crust.
Step 7
Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Rotate pan so crust bakes evenly. Edges should be golden. Let stand 5 minutes, cut and enjoy.
