  1. Combine warm water, active dry yeast and sweetener in either a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer (I use a KitchenAid).
  2. Allow the yeast mixture to sit and bloom for five minutes.
  3. Add all-purpose flour and salt and knead for 10 minutes, or by hand until the dough is elastic and springs back into place after the thumb test. Add additional flour, 1/4 cup at a time, as needed for the dough to come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Cover the bowl with a towel and allow it to rise in a warm place until it’s doubled in size, 1 1/2 – 2 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 550F or as high as your oven will go. Shape into two round balls of dough on a lightly floured surface. Cover with a towel until you are ready to use.
  6. To make your pizza: pound or roll out dough one pizza at a time with a rolling pin. Top as desired with sauce, mozzarella, vegetables, and pepperoni. Bake in a hot oven on a hot pizza stone or preheated pan for 4-6 minutes.
