We used my favorite crust- I got it from my cousin Melissa years ago. It has never failed me.  This crust recipe makes 2 large crust pizzas, and if you only want one, place the other half in a zip lock back and freeze it for later. Using this perfect crust as your base you can build the kind of pizza your heart desires.

Authentic Pizza Crust

1 ¾ cups warm water

4 cups flour

1 tablespoon instant yeast

2 teaspoon salt

Mix water, salt, yeast in a large bowl. Blend in two cups of flour and blend until incorporated. Add the other 2 cups of flour a portion at a time. Mix dough until it becomes no longer sticky.  Clean bowl and grease with olive oil. Return the dough into the bowl and allow dough to rise for about 1 hour or until doubled. Spread over pizza stone and top with favorite toppings. Bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes until cheese is golden and crust is done.

Happy Baking
