1 packet active dry yeast
1/4 tsp. granulated sugar
3/4 cup warm water - 110 degrees
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups shredded cheese (I like the Kraft mozzarella/provolone mix)
Your favorite pizza toppings
Dissolve yeast and sugar in water; allow to rest for 8 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine flour and salt. Pour yeast mixture over flour mixture and mix well with a heavy spoon. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes. Coat hands with olive oil and pat dough into ball Working from the edges to the center, press dough into a 12" circle.
Place dough on a lightly greased pizza pan and stretch dough to edges, leaving a thicker crust around the edges (I use a Pampered Chef bar pan).
Spread sauce over crust and top with garlic powder, cheese and desired toppings.
Bake in a 500 degree oven for 8-12 minutes (mine usually takes about 15) or until edges are golden brown.
