You will need: 4 gee whites or *egg free, 2 tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 2/3 cups warm water.
Heat oven to 425 degrees for Crust. 400 degrees for Bread. Spray 2 large pizza pans or French bread pans.
Mix pizza crust mix, yeast (packet included), egg whites, oil, vinegar, and water on high speed for 4 minutes. Spread dough evenly into 2 pans. Spray plastic wrap with non-stick spray. Use this to smooth top of bread. Prior to rising: Crusts - make several small slits in dough. Bread - make diagonal slashes on top for a "classic French bread look". Bakers Note: For best results use a stand mixer. This will help whip air into the batter resulting in soft, fluffy bread and warm the dough for a perfect rise. The dough should be the consistency of thick cake batter.
Rise: Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, 30-40 minutes.
Bake: Crusts at 425o for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and add toppings. Return crusts to oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes. For crispy crusts after adding toppings, return to oven and bake without a pan on the lowest rack. Bread at 400o for 25-30 minutes. To ensure crispy crusts, let cool on baking rack. Yield: 2 large crusts or 2 loaves of French bread.
*Egg free: omit eggs. Add additional 1/3 cup warm water.
