Pizza Dough

I have been making this a lot lately. The boys eat it up like it is going out of style.

3 Cups Flour (last night I used half wheat flour/half white, It turned out well)
2 1/4 teaspoons or 1 package yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/4 Cups warm water
1 teaspoon each basil & rosemary

Dissolve yeast in water and let sit for 1 minute. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread over cookie sheet, it should fit perfectly. Let rise as much as desired, I do about 3 hours. Before you add your sauce, cheese and toppings, bake at 425 for about 5 minutes. Take it out, add your fixings and continue to bake at 425 for about 12-15 more minutes. I spread my sauce, then toppings, then cheese. That way the cheese helps hold on the topping.

I've been looking for a great pizza dough recipe. We tried this the other night and loved it!! I didn't have rosemary so I used oregano. I also put some cornmeal on the pan to keep it from sticking and add a little crunch. I did half BBQ chicken and half sausage, yum!
