Let's Make It
Use pulsing action of food processor to process 1-3/4 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt until blended.
Mix warm water and oil until blended. With food processor running, gradually pour water mixture through feed tube at top of processor, mixing well after each addition. Process additional 1 min. or until mixture forms soft dough.
Place dough on floured surface; knead 4 min. or until dough is smooth and elastic, adding remaining flour as needed. Cover. Let stand 10 min.
Heat oven to 425ºF. Use floured hands to pat dough onto bottom and up side of 12-inch pizza pan sprayed with cooking spray. Spread pizza sauce onto bottom of crust; sprinkle with cheese.
Bake 12 to 15 min. or until edge of crust is golden brown.
How to Make Pizza Dough Without a Food Processor
Combine 1-3/4 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt in large bowl. Add water and oil; mix until blended. Gradually stir in enough of the remaining flour until mixture forms soft dough. Place on floured surface; continue as directed.
Why Water Temperature Matters
Use an instant read thermometer to check the temperature of water or other liquids that are added to yeast when baking pizza dough, breads, rolls and coffee cakes. The proper temperature ensures that the yeast is activated but not killed. When yeast is combined with dry ingredients, the water temperature should be 120º to 130ºF. When the yeast is mixed with the liquid ingredients, the temperature should be 105º to 115ºF.
For added color and texture, serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Prepare dough as directed; place on lightly floured surface. Roll into 12-inch round; place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spread with pizza sauce; continue as directed.
