5. Roll dough into a ball using both hands and rotating in a circular and downward motion to stretch dough and form a smooth surface.  Coat dough ball with a little olive oil a place in a cover bowl to let rise for 2 hours no cooler than room temperature.

6. Remove dough, need for another minute and repeat balling process.  Brush with olive oil and let rest for at least another hour.  Dough can now be place in refrigerator overnight if desired or rolled into a pizza.
