Dough

  3. Increase the speed and knead for 8-10 minutes. Add more flour as needed if the dough is sticking to the sides of the bowl. (It should stick to bottom of bowl but pull away from sides.)
  4. Cover the bowl and let rise for 30-40 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  6. Divide dough into 4-6 pieces. Roll out to desired thickness. Top with favorites (see below or see in your fridge/pantry;) and bake for 12-15 minutes.
