If you want to make your own pizza dough it's not difficult, just time consuming. Here is the recipe:
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sugar
1 envelope yeast
1-1/2 cup warm water
On clean counter, pile the flour, sugar and salt. In measuring cup, add warm water, oil and sprinkle in the yeast. Mix with spoon till dissolved. Let it sit for a minute and sprinkle a pinch of sugar into the yeast mixture and wait for the bubbles to start multiplying. This method is called "proofing" the yeast.
Slowly pour the liquid in the center of the well you created with the flour mixture. Slowly add the flour into the well until all flour is incorporated and you have made a dough. Keep flour at the side adding as much as you need to work with the dough and having a smooth surface.
Knead the dough by slapping it on the counter and spreading it apart and rolling it a few times. Continue for about 10 minutes. In a bowl that you put a little oil, place the dough into the bowl and cover with a clean towel. Let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour. After an hour, dough should have become double in size.
Punch it down once and remove onto counter. Cut the dough in half. Prepare pizza pan with some olive oil on surface.
Take the half and stretch all around edges. Place into the pan and stretch to corners with your fingers. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise again for about 40 minutes.
Use your favorite toppings. Use marinara sauce on the whole surface first. You can use sauteed onions, sliced mushrooms, crumbled cooked sausage, pepperoni, and then add shredded mozzarella. You can add fresh basil on top.
Bake in very hot 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 for about 5-10 minutes until the pizza is cooked through.
Check to make sure bottom is cooked.
This dough is enough for 2 pizzas.
