4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 packet dry yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil per pan

Directions:
Dissolve packet of yeast in 1/2 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees). Set aside for about 5 minutes. Prepare pans for dough with olive oil by brushing or wiping on with a paper towel. Whisk or stir sugar and salt into flour. Add 1 cup warm water and dissolved yeast. Mix well. If dough seems too sticky to handle, add some flour. Knead until smooth and elastic.

Put in a greased bowl, round up dough, greased side up; cover loosely with towel or plastic wrap and let rise until double in size, about 40 minutes. Punch down, divide in half for 2 large, pan type pizza. If you use smaller pans, 12 to 14 inches, you can probably get three thinner crusts.

Roll dough to fit pans. I fold the dough in half and quickly transfer to prepared pans. If the dough seems hard to handle at this time, very lightly smooth some flour over top, just a light dusting.
