  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's Pizza Yeast
  • 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 cups  all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons  sugar

  • 2/3 cup  very warm water 120 to 130 degrees
  • 3 tablespoons  vegetable oil

  • Roast Garlic
  • Preheat oven to 425º
  • Cut off ends of garlic cloves, leaving root end intact.
  • Place bulb, root side down on cookie sheet or medium piece of heavy duty tin foil.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.

  • Make Pizza Dough
  • Preheat oven to 425º
  • Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add water and oil. Mix until well blended; about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour until soft dough ball is formed. Dough will be sticky. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons mashed, roasted elephant garlic.
  • Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if needed, until smooth and elastic; about 4 minutes. With floured hands, pat dough out to fill greased pizza pan, or dust work surface with 2 to 4 tablespoons cornmeal, roll dough into a 12-inch circle and transfer to a greased pizza pan. Top with desired pizza sauce, toppings and cheese.
  • Bake at 425 on bottom oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.
