Copycat Papa John's Pizza Dough Recipe

I forgot to take a picture of the crust before we put the toppings on.  This is our new favorite dough recipe.  The recipes says it make 3 pizzas, but I got 4 16 inch pizzas and the dough wasn't super thin and wasn't too thick, either.  We LOVED this.
Copycat Papa John’s Pizza Dough Recipe:
(Makes 3 pizzas)  Beth got 4 pizzas

8 cups all-purpose flour

6 Tablespoons sugar

6 3/4 teaspoons fast rising yeast

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

3 cups very warm water (120 to 130 degrees F)

6 Tablespoons vegetable oil


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt.  Gradually add water and oil to mixture.  Blend at low speed until moistened, then beat for 2 minutes at medium speed until dough pulls away from sides of the bowl.  On a lightly floured surface, knead until dough is smooth and elastic.  Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest in a warm place for 15 minutes.  Press out dough onto 3 pizza pans.  Poke the dough randomly with a fork.  Let rise again in a warm place for 10-15 minutes.  Brush crusts lightly with oil and bake them for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and top as desired.  Bake for 4-5 more minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
