Homemade Pizza Dough

1 cup warm water (120-130 degrees)
2 tablespoons cooking oil
In large bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups of the flour, yeast,and salt. Add warm water and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low speen for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.
Using a spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6-8
minutes total). Divide dough in half. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
Roll out, add toppings and bake as directed in individual recipes.
