1. Insert the universal blade into the work bowl of the Cuisinart® 7-Cup Food Processor.
Add the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, and olive oil to the bowl and pulse a few times to combine.
While the unit is running, pour the water through the feed tube as fast as the flour absorbs it.
Process until the dough cleans the sides of the work bowl and forms a ball. Continue to process
for 30 seconds to knead the dough. Dough should be slightly sticky.
2. Transfer the dough to a clean surface and knead by hand for an additional minute. Put the
dough into a clean bowl and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap. Let it rise in a warm,
draft-free place for about 1 hour; dough should double in size.
3. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and gently fold over to “punch” down. Form into
desired crust size(s) as directed by recipe.
