No Knead Pizza Dough

This recipe, based on breadmaker Jim Lahey's famous no-knead pizza dough, lets the dough rise naturally on its own -- no kneading required! A long, slow rise allows the flavors of the dough to develop and makes for a perfect texture. But who wants to wait around while dough rises? The trick is to start a day early. Simply stir everything up in a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and leave it for a day, then bake it. It’s that easy!

      To use the dough, preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Sprinkle a work surface generously with flour. Divide the dough in half and pat each half into a disk.
