Ingredients
  

  • 5 ounces (1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons) warm water (110 – 120 degrees F)
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 cups (8½ ounces) all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling out the dough
  • ¼ cup (1 ounce) beet powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the water, yeast, and sugar. Let it sit until the surface is bubbly, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the flour, beet powder, and salt and stir until you have a soft, sticky dough.
  • Drizzle the olive oil into another clean bowl. Dump the dough into the bowl and toss it around a few times to evenly coat the surface of the dough with the oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set the bowl in a warm place until it has doubled in size, about 1 to 1½ hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees and lightly dust a 14-inch round pizza tray with flour. Transfer the dough to the center of the tray and sprinkle a little flour on top. Using the pizza roller, roll the dough out to a 12-inch circle. Sprinkle on more flour as you go, if needed, to prevent sticking.
  • Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 3-5 minutes.
  • Using an offset spatula, loosen the crust from the pizza tray and slide it onto a 14-inch round pizza screen. Bake for 5 minutes more or until the bottom of the crust is nicely browned.
  • Proceed with one of the pizza recipes on KookyPizza.com or slide the crust back onto the pizza tray, layer on toppings of your choice, and bake in a 400-degree oven for 5-7 minutes or until toppings are melted and/or heated through.
