I have a Bread Machine recipe for Pizza Crust. Do you have a bread machine? If so, let me know.

Most authentic pizza crust is simply made of flour, water, yeast & olive oil. No sugar or other ingredients. The texture of the crust is often what we remember most and that is hard to achieve in home ovens. A pizza stone can help. Baking at very high temperatures can help. There are a couple of bread baking books that do a good job of explaining the intricacies of baking pizza dough. I'll try and find the titles again and post them.

This is a tough one. A lot of pizza crusts are
made with yeast and sugar. You could do some
online searches OR sometimes those cookbooks that
are sold by local churches (for fundraising) will
have somebody's homemade pizza crust recipe.
Even yeast manufacturer's print pizza crust recipes on the package or may have some online; or
if you write for them. Check cookbooks at your
local library. Good Luck!

This one will fool most anybody - turn yer oven all the way on, thaw a loaf of that cheap frozen bread dough, spread it out, (if you want, roll strips of mozzarella into the rim) seal the top with a skiff of olive oil and start piling toppins - only bake it about 8 minutes :)

problem with Pizza crust is that most shops use prepackaged dough or mix. A few make their own however and theirs is often some slight twist on the usual recipe. I've heard everything from using spring water, to only olive oil, certain yeasts etc. I've got a good one that makes a crust similar to Pizza Hut. But can't find it tonight. I'll look again tommorrow.

BTW, I don't care for the Pizza sold by most area shops. Most get the crust ok, it's the sauce and toppings that are the pitts. I swear one place uses condensed tomato soup for sauce. To many others just use spaghetti sauce. Though it's not that healthy, I prefer a mix of whole milk mozzarella, and long horn, maybe some asiago. The very best I've ever had was a fresh tomato pizza at a place called the Pines of Naples in Bethesda Md. No red sauce at all, just thin sliced tomatoes and spices with cheese.
