For Homemade Pizza Dough
Dry active yeast
,105-115 Degrees F
All purpose flour
,plus more for dusting
Extra virgin olive oil
For the pizza toppings
Boneless skinless chicken breasts
,cooked and shredded
,14 1/2 ounce cans
14 1/2 Diced tomatoes, drained

For the Homemade dough
In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in 1/4-cup warm water (100-110 degrees).
In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the flour and the salt.
Add the oil, yeast mixture, and the remaining 3/4 C water, mix on low speed until dough comes cleanly away from the sides of the bowl and clusters around the dough hook, about 5 minutes.
If the dough is still sticky, then add a bit more flour until it pulls cleanly away from the hook.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead by hand 2 or 3 minutes.
The dough should be smooth and firm. Place in lightly oiled bowl an cover with plastic wrap.
Let sit for about 30-45 minutes. (When ready, the dough will stretch as it is lightly pulled).
Take dough out of bowl and cut in half
Work each ball by pulling down the sides and tucking under the bottom of the ball. Repeat 4 or 5 times.
Cover the dough with loosely fitted plastic wrap and let rest 15 to 20 minutes.
At this point, the balls can be used or wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for up to 2 days.
