  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oil, sugar, salt and 1-1/2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Turn onto a floured surface; cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Roll into a 13-in. circle. Grease a 12-in. pizza pan and sprinkle with cornmeal. Transfer dough to prepared pan, building up edges slightly. Do not let rise. Bake at 425 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until browned. Add toppings; bake 10-15 minutes longer.

It was great. I used regular all-purpose flour instead of cornmill since that was alll I had. I had to use more than 2 1/2 cups of flour though b/c the dough was too sticky.

This was a good crust recipe. The dough didn't want to come together in the mixer so I added more oil - unfortunately, this made it more sticky and harder to work with - my fault. But the outcom...

Out of all the quick pizza doughs I've tried I like this one the best (so far).

Easy, idiot-proof, basic. There is no reason this recipe should not have 5 stars. It is what it says. If you're looking to add wheat or more flavor, experiment, but this recipe is good as is.

Very easy to make and turned out great! I followed the directions exactly. Next time I might add some garlic powder or something to make it a little less bland, but it had great texture and fo...

I've made this twice and will be making it more often. I'm a bit intimidated by yeast, but it turned out pizzaria style without the fuss of rising, punching, kneading etc... Next time I'll up ...
