|3½ cups||16.0 ounces||32.0 pounds||100.0%||All-purpose flour|
|¾ cup||5.8 ounces||11.5 pounds||36.0%||Water, 90 °F|
|3½ teaspoons||0.6 ounce||18.0 ounces||3.5%||Vegetable oil|
|1½ teaspoons||0.2 ounce||6.0 ounces||1.2%||Sugar|
|1 teaspoon||0.2 ounce||6.0 ounces||1.2%||Salt|
|1½ teaspoons||0.2 ounce||6.0 ounces||1.2%||Active dry yeast|
Stand mixer instructions: Pour 75% of the water and all of the oil into the mixer bowl. In a second bowl, mix the yeast with the remaining water and allow to proof for 5 minutes. In the mixer bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar, and the yeast mixture. Mix on slow speed for 10 minutes. Note: Because the dough is very dry, it will not form into a cohesive ball; rather it will be loose and scrappy with some raw flour left unincorporated.
Food processor (Single Pizza) instructions: Place all of the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor fitted with its steel cutting blade. Process for approximately 30 seconds until everything is thoroughly mixed and the dough resembles moist cornmeal. Empty contents onto a work surface and, using your hands, press the mixture into a dough ball.
Rising: After proper mixing, the dough will be very stiff. Place dough into a sealed bucket and allow to rise for a minimum of 9 hours at room temperature. Dough can be held and used for up to 18 hours after the initial 9 hour rise.
Sheeting: The dough must be sheeted into a cutter pan prior to use. A rolling pin may be used in the absence of a dough sheeter. Please note that the dough will be very stiff and will be difficult to roll by hand. Sheet dough to approximately 1/16˝ thickness.
Pizza Preparation: Place sheeted dough over a lightly oiled cutter pan, press into place, and dock. Use a rolling pin to trim off the excess dough draping over the side of the cutter pan. Apply sauce, shredded cheese, and toppings.
Baking Instructions: Bake in a preheated 475° F oven for approximately 10 minutes until crust is crisp and golden brown.
