    Since my DD asked for this and I had to type it anyway, thought I'd post it. We used to make a pizza at least once a week. This recipe is from Fleischmann's Yeast. Even DH has made this one.

    PIZZA DOUGH

    3 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 pkg. yeast
    3/4 tsp. salt
    1 cup very warm water (125 to 130 degrees F.)
    2 Tbsp. olive or vegetable oil (I use a little more)
    Cornmeal for dusting pan, optional

    In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt. Stir very warm water and salt into dry ingredients. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead dough on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface for 10 minutes.

    Lightly oil 1 (14-inch) or 2 (12-inch) round pizza pans. Sprinkle with cornmeal, if desired. Form dough into smooth ball. Roll dough to fit pan(s).

    Spread dough with the pizza sauce recipe below or use your favorite homemade or prepared sauce. Use mozzarella cheese and your favorite toppings.

    Bake in preheated 400 degree F. oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until done. Time depends on size and thickness of crust and selected toppings.

    Dough can be made ahead and stored in fridge until needed. Bring to room temperature before using.

    Note: The dough can be rolled out and cut into strips with pizza cutter and baked as bread sticks.

    Pizza Sauce

    1 - 15 oz. can tomato sauce
    2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning ( or adjust to suit your taste)
    1 Tbsp. garlic powder

    Mix together and let stand for at least an hour. Can store several days in refrigerator and can also be used to dip bread sticks.

    Also can make bread dipper from Olive Oil and crushed garlic or garlic salt or powder. Let stand at room temperature an hour or so to develop flavor.

    I knew I should have come to you all first!! I've been looking for a recipe for pizza crust for mom. Thanks OntheGo, you've put me back in the "good daughter" status for the day. (Just kidding Mom tells both of us we're the "good one" She is so diplomatic like that LOL)

    jbsstrawberry.....I often make the crust as crunchy breadsticks to eat with spaghetti. Hope your mom enjoys it. Sometimes, I roll it in sesame seeds before cooking.

    We like to make our own pizza. As a friend put it, "It's the only way to get enough pepperoni on a pizza!" My son loves pepperoni pizza, but I prefer a different one. I put pesto on in place of the red sauce. Then, put chicken, artichoke hearts, feta, crumbled gorganzola and motzerella. I top it with fresh tomatoes after it's baked. Another option would be sun dried tomatoes tossed on with the artichoke hearts.

    MissTreated, That's making me hungry. My husband and one grandson are pepperoni fans...I don't like pepperoni. I like to add lots of veggies, too and bulk pork sausage in little pinches.

    I was trying to decide what to cook for supper.........just might have to make a pizza. The artichoke hearts and chopped tomatoes sound like a winner.

    Mistreated: This does sound wonderful. I may have to whip up a pizza for dinner tonight. Thanks for sharing your version

    ON THE GO, thanks for your version. I think I'll get alot of mileage out of the pizza dough bread sticks with dipping oil. Wow, it doesn't get much better than that! Thank you for the recipes.

    We also have a great recipe for homemade pizza dough.

    3 cups flour
    1 pkg yeast
    1 cup very warm water
    1 tbsp honey
    1 tbsp olive oil

    You can put this in your bread machine on a dough cycle, and have pizza dough for supper. It will make 1 fluffy 15" pizza, or 2 thin crust 13".

    Enjoy! (we have had this recipe for years, it is wonderful)
