My Pizza Dough

Ok, I've had a few requests for my pizza dough recipe so I thought I'd throw it up on the blog.  

We try to have pizza and movie night every Friday with the kids and they love it!  They get to make their own pizzas with whatever they want on it.  It's always a hit and it's turned out to be a pretty fun family tradition.  Here you go and enjoy.

Pizza dough:

1 pkg yeast
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
2 cups hot water
5-6 cups flour (I like to use whole wheat.  You can do all white or half and half.  Whatever you prefer.)

Mix all ingredients in your Bosch or mixer.  I let it mix for 5 minutes in the Bosch so I don't have to  knead it by hand.  Let it rise and then punch it down.  Divide up into pieces so everyone can make their own or spread it out on a sheet pan for a large one.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes after all the topping have been put on, of course.  Yay!

Yum! We'll give it a try. How long do you typically have to let it rise?
Thanks for the tradition ideas!
