Start by adding the warm water and yeast to your mixing bowl. Allow to sit for 5 minutes so that the yeast can proof.
While you are waiting for the yeast to do it's thing place flour and salt into a large bowl.
Once the yeast has proofed 2 ½ cups flour with proofed yeast and mix well in Kitchen Aid with a dough hook.
Add additional 2 ½ cups flour and knead until smooth.
Next place the bowl with plastic wrap. You will want to let the dough rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
Grab your baking sheet and coat it with olive oil. This is to ensure the dough won't stick to the pan.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Grab the dough from the bowl and add more flour as needed (a little at a time) to alleviate the stickiness of the dough if needed.
Split dough in half and roll each ball of dough onto a floured surface. Knead a few times to ensure the dough is a uniformed ball.
Now it's time to roll! Sprinkle flour over your rolling pin and roll out the crust. The trick I use for a perfectly shaped pizza is to roll the rolling pin in the same direction 3 or 4 times. I flip the dough and roll it the opposite way 3 or 4 times and repeat until I get a perfectly shaped pizza that will fit my baking sheet.
Now comes the fun part! Top your pizza dough however you would like. You'll want to leave a ½" or so for the crust!
