I have made this recipe using both methods. The sponge method works great and if you want same day pizza, don't worry, it comes out FABULOUS! My family loves the tender crust. The dough is a little sticky, but try to use a bench scraper and dust your hands and counter well with flour. I do not knead it very long, maybe just two to three times, and try to just form it into a ball with floured hands. After the dough has risen and it has been divided in half, I put the toppings on the pizza once I have stretched the dough into the pan. Then I let the pizza rise for about an hour before I bake it. Just really try to avoid adding too much extra flour. I then crank the oven up and preheat it to 450 degrees F and bake the pizza for 7 minutes, turn it around and bake another 3-5 minutes. I check it often at the end so I do not burn it. My daughter told me it is totally addicting, she tries to eat one piece, but the smell and flavor call to her and she can stop her self from eating more. Thank you for this wonderful recipe, I will never use any other!
