Quick and Easy Pizza Crust


Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
makes 1 - 12 inch pizza crust

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast [2.25 tsp]
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 1/2 cups bread flour [all-purpose is ok too]
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
*I like to add a tsp of garlic powder to my dough too.*

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in flour, salt and oil [and garlic powder, if you're using it]. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal. Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. 
  4. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.
