Let set 5 minutes or until it has a nice bubbly look to the top.
Mix in 1 cup of flour and the salt.
Add flour 1 cup at a time until you have added 5 cups total, mixing after each addition. At this point add flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough is just slightly sticky.
Set your mixer to 2 and let it knead the dough for 3 minutes or by hand until it is nice and elastic. Add a little flour as need be so your hands don’t stick.
Dough will be slightly sticky.
Cover dough with a paper towel or light weight towel and set on back of stove until dough doubles – 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Coat hands in oil, punch down dough and divide in 2 for 2 large pizzas.
Oil a pan or use a baking stone without oil.
Spread dough across pan, patching holes if they appear.
Lightly brush crust with oil.
Add favorite toppings.
Bake at 450 until top is golden brown. Usually around 15 minutes.
Pull the pizza out of the oven and let sit a few minutes. I know it is tempting to bite right in but the burnt tongue always ruins it for me. Plus, the toppings stay on better if it sets a few minutes.
