Be sure to allow your dough to come to room temperature before stretching. (About 2 hours)
Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. If using a pizza stone, let it heat up for 20 mins in the oven.
Flour your work area along with your dough.
Begin pressing through the center working from the inside out to form the shape of your dough. Do this for a few minutes until your dough starts to widen out a bit.
Then pick up your dough, place your fist in the center, then, using your other hand, pull away in a circular motion to stretch the dough. Repeat this about 5 times then place your dough down to rest for 5-10 mins.
After resting, pick your dough up and repeat your circular stretching motion. By now it should be much easier to work with and should become about a 14”-16” wide pizza.
Oil your pizza pan with olive and place your dough on top
Add your pizza sauce and cheese.
Bake for 20 mins or until crust becomes lightly golden and crispy. Each oven is different so be sure to check about halfway through.
Add a minute or two more if necessary to bake.
Remove from the oven and add your freshly grated parmesan and basil leaves. Enjoy!
