Easy Pizza Dough (Stand Mixer Method)

2 Cups Warm Water
1 Tablespoon Yeast
1 Tablespoon Salt

1 Pinch of sugar
5 Cups Flour

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add water, yeast and sugar and let it stand for a few minutes to proof. After few minutes add flour and salt.
Using the dough hook from the mixer, stir until a loose dough forms
Once the dough forms into a ball, allow the mixer to knead for 5 minutes at medium-high. Dough should be a little sticky.
Form the dough into a round and place in a lightly oiled bowl, turn it over to coat. Cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel and let it rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Once the dough has doubled, turn it out onto a lightly floured counter. Roll and stretch the dough into a cylinder and divide into 2 equal pieces. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes so it will be easier to roll out.
Each ball will be approximately 1 pound of dough
Roll out the dough to use in your favorite pizza or any other recipe
You can also refrigerate it or freeze it until needed. Enjoy!!!
