Pizza dough!

What do both of these dishes have in common? They are both made from Katie's Pizza dough! It's such an easy recipe, the hardest part is the waiting to let it rise... seriously it's soo easy! I tripled the recipe so that I could make the garlic knots, the Pizza Rolls AND still be able to throw some into the freezer for future use! Sweet!
So here's what you do:
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
3/4 c. plus 2 Tbsp lukewarm water
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp. olive oil


-Combine yeast and water in small bowl and let stand until slightly foamy (about 10 minutes).
-Combine 2 3/4 cups flour and salt in large bowl and form into a mound.
-Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture.
-Using a fork and stirring in a circular motion, gradually pull the flour into the yeast mixture. Continue stirring until a dough forms.
-Lightly flour a work surface with some additional flour and transfer the dough to it.
-Using the heel of your hand, knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Form the dough into a ball.
-Brush a large bowl with the olive oil and place the dough in it. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature until doubled in size, 1 to 2 hours.
-Turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with the remaining flour. Punch down the dough and, using your hand, begin to press it out gently into the desired shape.

So Good and EASY! I'll never buy pre-made dough again!
