Pizza dough

From Brian Lagerstrom's Youtube series.

I've used this dough recipe for both "New York"-style using a baking steel in a conventional home oven. Quotes used because I'm unsure how authentic I am with New York style... It's also used for my cast iron pan style dough. This recipe comes thanks to Brian Lagerstrom's YouTube channel -- my favorite YouTube cooking channel.
