Traditional Baking Method

In medium mixer bowl, combine 1 cup flour, yeast, and salt; mix well. Combine water and oil; heat to 120° to 130°F; add to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on floured surface 3 to 5 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball, cover, and allow it to rest for 15 minutes.

 

Divide dough into 2 parts. With well-floured or greased fingers, press each half into greased 12- or 14-inch pizza pan. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of your favorite shredded cheese over dough to prevent a soggy crust. Spread prepared pizza sauce on each pizza (approximately 3/4 cup of sauce per pizza). Add your favorite toppings---mushrooms, onions, olives, green peppers, pepperoni, cooked Italian sausage, anchovies, etc. Cover with shredded cheese of your choice- Mozzarella, Parmesan and Asiago. Bake at 400°F for 25 to 30 minutes until edge is crisp and light golden brown and cheeses are melted. Serve immediately.
 

 

You can also substitute Active Dry Yeast on an equal basis for the instant yeast.  Expect about a 50% slower rise time.

I added 1/2 TSP of Adams Reserve Classic Italian Bread Dipper seasoning (ingredients are garlic, rosemary, thyme, black pepper and parsley) to the dough ... gave it really nice Italian taste. Yum.

This recipe was easy and makes great crust! I sprinkle Sea salt and Corn flour lightly on greased cookie sheets. Makes crust even more yummier. I also spray edges with Olive oil and sprinkle sea salt and parm cheese on top!

soggy crust

some people parbake and some brush with olive oil to prevent mositure from going into crust.

pizza crust

Thank you for your recipe....this is the FIRST one that I've ever read that told me to put cheese on first to prevent a soggy crust...I am 54 years old and I have asked the WORLD what am I doing wrong on my pizza crust....and I know how to bake some great bread.....THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR WORDS OF WISDOM!!!!! :)

Pizza

Rather than cheese first, try pre-baking your crust for 4 minutes, removing it from the oven and adding your sauce and ingredients...Cheese last. No more raw pizza dough.

This was my first Pizza I had made. We all enjoyed the Pizza I would say to all you should try it. Very fun to make we loved the way it tasted.
