4 cups flour (I generally use whole wheat)
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup lukewarm water
1 (1/4 ounce) package yeast
3 tablespoons olive oil
1. Mix flour, sugar, and salt together. Dissolve yeast in water and add to flour mixture. Stir until dough has absorbed all water then add olive oil.
2. Mix until dough is not sticky, adding water or flour as necessary (should not need much of either using the above amounts). Knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes then place in a covered bowl in a warm draft free area for 30 minutes, or until dough has doubled in size. Then knead for 2 or 3 more minutes and let rise 20 minutes more.
3. Now roll the dough out. The above recipe should make enough crust for one 16" deep dish pizza or two 16" regular pizzas. Either way, roll out two 16" crusts. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F if making pizza now.
4. For deep dish, put the first one in the pan, then add tomato sauce, veggies, and tons of vegan cheese. Then place your second crust over this and pinch the two crusts together. Add a top layer of tomato sauce and another ton of soy cheese. Now bake for 20-30 minutes.'
