Pizza Crust

What you need: 

1 (1/4 ounce) package yeast
1/3 cup lukewarm water
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup lukewarm water

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F if baking crust now. Dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup lukewarm water and let stand 10 minutes.
2. In a bowl, mix flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture, blend, then add 2/3 cup lukewarm water to make a pliable, elastic dough.
3. Form into a ball, cover with a clean cloth, and let rise until doubled in a warm place (about 20-30 minutes).
4. Roll out dough onto pizza stone or a flat pan; leave a lip around the edge. Top with olive oil, if desired, and spread sauce; add toppings of your choice. Bake for about 20 minutes, until crisp.
Variations: Add 4 teaspoons basil for a more flavorful crust. Knead in 4 tablespoons margarine for a more pastry-like crust.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

i added only 2 T yeast as suggested later on in the comments... maybe i will try making the crust super thin because it turned out really thick and kinda hard... it still tasted alright though... maybe it was my fault but I will try this recipe again... my pic looks pretty :)

To answer my own question, one pizza of average thickness will feed around 3 adults. The crust was quite easy to make and tasty. :)

I have never tried making homemade pizza dough before, but this recipe looks nice and easy :)  A quick question though: about what diameter is the resulting pizza? I am feeding four adults, and wasn't sure how many pizzas I would be needing to make with this recipe.

+1 to what everbody else has already said about this, including the need for more water.  so easy, no kneading(!), super quick, & great texture.  i stretched this out to the edges of a pizza stone and still had a thick fluffy crust.

I had been using another recipe on this site for easy pizza crust. This is easier and tastes like a thousand times better! This is my new go-to pizza crust recipe. Thanks a million!!!

This was a reallly great pizza dough!  I did have to add 1/3 cup more water.  Used herbs in the crust and 1/2 whole wheat flour.  YUMMY!  I like that it seems to be a very versatile crust...  This time I used a really big pizza pan and was craving a thin crispy crust!  It was perfect.  But from the pics and reviews...  It looks like it makes mean fluffy pizza too!  Oh... and some of the toppings I used.... sundried tomatoes,regular tomatoes, bell peppers, carmelized red and white onions and mushrooms...  OMG.  Heaven. :)>>>

This turned out really well!  ;)b

I love a good thick pizza with huge crust and this dough was perfect for it. I did have to add some extra water since I used bread flour.

I used tomato paste with italian herbs and nut. yeast as my base and topped it with mozzarella cheeze, sliced tomatoes and bell peppers. It was delicious!

good recipe.  I used whole wheat bread flour, garlic, and an Italian seasoning blend. wipsh I had basil, that would have been wonderful.  Topped my pizza with seasoned tomato sauce w/ TVP, sliced celery, carrots, zucchini, and red pepper.  excellent.

Wish I had this recipe two days ago! Instead I used the bread stick recipe (with half whole wheat flour) and it made a tasty pizza crust--and so easy!    http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=24199.0
