No Rise Pizza Dough

No Rise Pizza Dough
2 1/2 to 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 package active yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
Heat water to 110 degrees. Add yeast and let it sit for 5 minutes until its all nice and bubbly. Mix 2 cups flour and salt together. Add olive oil to yeast/water mixture and stir. Slowly pour in yeast mixture. Mix well. Add enough extra flour so that it stops sticking to the sides. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes.
For a crispy cruncy crust: prebake dough at 425 for 7 minutes, remove from oven, add toppings and then slide pizza directly onto the oven on the lowest rack until the toppings all melt together.
For a chewy crust: put the pizza in the oven with all the toppings, leave it on the cookie sheet and cook at 400 degrees. 
This recipe makes two 12 inch pizzas.
