Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Knead on a lightly floured surface until well blended, a couple of minutes. Press out in your pizza pan. Top with your favorite toppings and bake 35 minutes or until crust is golden at 350 degrees F.
You can make bread sticks from this crust, do not over bake them. Brush them with oil or egg-white what ever you prefer, sprinkle with garlic salt and bake around 10 minutes. Check one to see if they are done.

It really is the perfect pizza dough. I have given this recipe to many ladies that enjoy a fun dinner, and the raves come back as some of the best pizza dough ever!
Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water and set aside to proof for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine honey, olive oil, salt and cool water in a small bowl or measuring cup. Take flour and put on a work surface and make a hole or well in the center and pour honey/water mixture in the center of the flour well. Drag some of the flour over the wet mixture, then add the yeast and slowly mix all ingredients.
Or: Put all ingredients, except for the salt, in a strong mixer, making sure the flour is on top of wet honey/water mixture. Then put the yeast mixture on top of the flour and turn on your mixer, and let it do the work for you. Let it knead the dough for about 15 minutes on the slowest speed.
This dough makes a really nice small loaf of Pizza Dough Bread and Bread Sticks, too.
Note: remember to never put the salt next to the yeast, as salt kills yeast. lol

This pizza dough is great! You can make the dough, and refrigerate it for up to a week. You can also freeze it.
Mix yeast in warm water and add all remaining ingredients, stirring with a wooden spoon. When flour is mixed in, lightly knead the dough.

How do I make a pizza base? I need help on how to do this. I tried and it was a disaster. It didn't rise and it went rock hard in the oven.

Add 1 Tbsp. yeast (or 1 pkg) to 1 cup of lukewarm water. Let sit for a few minutes and add 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp,. salt and 3 Tbsp cooking oil. Stirring, add flour (I use bread flour and some whole wheat flour) and continue adding until it is very hard to stir. Sprinkle flour on counter and dump dough out on flour. Knead dough while adding flour until dough is no longer sticky and can be rolled out. Do not over-knead; if you break down the gluten in the dough your crust will not rise and be hard & tough. This will make enough for 2 small pizzas or 1 large.
Depending on the type of pizza I am making I bake the dough for 15 minutes without topping and about 20 minutes with the toppings at 425 F.
This page contains a whole wheat pizza dough recipe. Rather than use white flour, improve the nutritional value of your next pizza by making it on a whole wheat dough crust.

I don't make mine home made but I discovered that Betty Crocker makes a great bag mix that is super easy and about 60 cents a bag. One mix makes a thin crust pizza for our family of 4. (11/01/2006)
