Oil the insides of a large mixing bowl and place the dough in it.

Roll the dough around a bit so it's fully covered in oil.

Cover and let rise 2 - 4 hours until doubled in size.


cornmeal for pizza

Sprinkle some cornmeal on your counter or working surface so you'll be able to roll out the risen dough.

Place the dough on the cornmeal and flip it over to cover in cornmeal.

Roll it out uniformly just so it's slightly smaller in diameter than your pizza stone.
