Ina's Pizza Crust

We were in a hurry tonight, so the regular pizza dough went out the window. But that was okay because I had just seen Ina Garten do a "Pizza Party" and it looked delicious. I didn't do her full pizza, but I did use her crust. It got rave reviews from the husband - thin, but still soft and chewy.

Ina Garten's Pizza Dough
1 1/4 C warm water
2 pkg dry yeast
1 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp olive oil
4 C flour
2 tsp kosher salt

Combine water, yeast, honey and olive oil in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a dough hook. When the yeast is dissolved add 3 C flour, then salt. With the mixer on med-low, add up to 1 C of additional floour just enough to make a soft dough. Remove from bowl and knead about 10 times to create a smooth ball. Place in a greased bowl, and let rise for 30 minutes. Remove from bowl and divide into 6 pieces for individual pizzas, or 3 pieces for family pizzas. Let the dough rest 10 minutes before rolling out.

Bake at 500 degrees for about 8 minutes, if you are using a pizza stone.
