Basic Pizza Dough Recipe

Step 1

Mix water yeast and sugar in a bowl and let stand for 1-2 min. Add remaining ingredients and knead the dough for 5-10 min. until elastic. When making the pizza I have found that a pizza stone works best for maintaining a crispy bottom crust. If you don't have a pizza stone try greasing your pan and then dust it with corn meal. Bake the crust by itself (no toppings) for about 10 min. Then top and finish baking.
