Pizza Crust

What you need: 

1 (1/4 ounce) package yeast
1/3 cup lukewarm water
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup lukewarm water

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F if baking crust now. Dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup lukewarm water and let stand 10 minutes.
2. In a bowl, mix flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture, blend, then add 2/3 cup lukewarm water to make a pliable, elastic dough.
3. Form into a ball, cover with a clean cloth, and let rise until doubled in a warm place (about 20-30 minutes).
4. Roll out dough onto pizza stone or a flat pan; leave a lip around the edge. Top with olive oil, if desired, and spread sauce; add toppings of your choice. Bake for about 20 minutes, until crisp.
Variations: Add 4 teaspoons basil for a more flavorful crust. Knead in 4 tablespoons margarine for a more pastry-like crust.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Not what I was expecting. I first tried the other two more popular pizza crust recipes on here, with no luck, and this recipe falls into the same boat. It just didn't taste right! I added the basil and margarine, like the recipe mentions. It did not come out cripsy and chewy like pizza you would get at a pizza place. I'll have to keep searching so I don't keep inhaling the Amy's No Cheese frozen pizzas! Now THAT is some good crust!

The first time I made this recipe I remember it didn't turn out well... I trashed it... The second, third time around, I did 1 of the variations... I added the "butter" but for the spices I used garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley instead of the basil to give the crust a ranch like flavor... Very good crust... With the variation...

I also let my dough rise by setting the oven on the lowest setting and leaving the bowl of dough right on top the opened oven door (if that makes sense)

I tried this out the other day.. First of all, I must say that I was super proud of myself when the dough rose. :) :) :)
I added some herbs to this, and it smelled amazing... but it didn't taste like much. It was probably my fault though, as I can hardly cook. I added olives, tomatoes, eggplant, sprouts.. I put a ton of spices/herbs on it again, along with a few dashes of nutritional yeast. The center of the pizza wouldn't cook though. I later added some spaghetti sauce on top to attempt to add flavor, but it still somehow lacked potential. It ended up in the trash. :(

TL sauce is a must! your pizza looks so good but next time use some pizza sauce!

Oh, and I added tons of garlic.

Perfect Saturday night pizza.  And how do I know it was good?  My 18 mo old son devoured it!  ;D

It really fluffed up because I made it up in the afternoon then set it in the oven before cooking for a couple of hours, then about 1/2 before dinner I cooked it in the oven on 400degrees for about 30 minutes. 

The only change I made was that I added olive oil to the mix, and used the bread machine's dough cycle to knead it.  I didn't measure how much olive oil I put in it, about 2 tbsp I guess, but it sure turned out good!  Light and fluffy and really soft.  Like I said, my son devoured it!  Thanks for the recipe.
