Recipe Ingredients:

1 (0.25-ounce) package active dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
2/3 cup warm water
1 cup all-purpose or bread flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose or bread flour
3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 large eggs - divided use
1 tablespoon water

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Gradually add 1 cup flour, oil, sugar, and salt; mix well. Add remaining flour until blended. Transfer to a floured surface; knead for 5 to 8 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease the surface of the dough. Cover; place in warm spot, let rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  3. Divide dough in half and let rest, covered for 10 minutes. Roll dough into two 13-inch circles on a floured surface. Fit one circle into a greased 12-inch pizza pan.
  4. Combine 1 egg, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, garlic salt, and pepper in a bowl; mix well then spread over dough. Top with the remaining circle and flute the edge.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl beat remaining egg with 1 tablespoon water; brush top of dough.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes longer, or until brown. Cut into wedges.
