Test Kitchen Tip

After you form the dough balls, they can be covered and refrigerated for a day. Just punch them down again when you’re ready to roll them out.

Instructions

Dissolve yeast in water. Stir in honey and let stand until the liquid begins to bubble, 35 minutes; stir in 1 Tbsp. oil.

Pulse flour and salt in a food processor to combine. With the machine running, pour in the yeast mixture and process until dough forms a ball around the blade.

Remove dough from processor (it might be sticky) and knead on a lightly floured surface, adding more flour as necessary, until smooth and elastic, 12 minutes.

Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl; turn to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until dough stretches gently when pulled, 3060 minutes.

Punch dough down and divide into four pieces; shape into balls (pull down sides, tuck under, and pinch dough closed on bottom). Roll each ball under your palm until smooth, about 1 minute.

Arrange dough balls on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap coated with nonstick spray, and let rise 3060 minutes more.

Press each dough ball out on a lightly floured surface. Turn dough, pressing on its center, then roll each into a 7- to 8-inch circle. Transfer two rolled dough rounds to a pizza peel generously dusted with cornmeal; brush each with 1 tsp. oil, then add toppings.
