There's no need to go through the hour rise and the punch down cycle: after kneading in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky, just grease the pan (I use a cookie sheet) with margarine (which I spread with a small piece of tin foil), and then place dough on pan and spread out evenly and up sides with floured hands and bake at 375 for probably about 10 minutes before taking out and putting on toppings. The dough rises beautifully as it bakes. I sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese on top of the dough before placing in oven. Also, no need to measure the yeast, just use one packet. Once, ( I made two pizzas) the yeast didn't dissolve properly. I either didn't have the water warm enough or my chilly home that night cooled it too fast, so I microwaved the water, yeast, brown sugar solution slightly in the microwave then stirred, and it worked out fine. Finally, I added some seasoned salt, sage, garlic powder, and cumin to the crust mix and used vegetable oil vs. olive oil as that's all I had. I used onion and green pepper strips for toppings besides the cheese and sauce. I microwaved the onions and peppers for about 3 minutes on a plate before putting them on the pizza and in the oven so they wouldn't be underdone and crunchy.. I used roasted garlic spaghetti sauce. What a great pizza crust recipe! My high school son said it's the best pizza he's ever had! The whole family loved it! Thanks to the submitter!!
