Amazingly Easy Pizza Crust

This is our favorite pizza crust recipe, found on allrecipes.com. We like it baked in the oven or even on the grill. I've modified the recipe to use all purpose flour instead of bread flour, simply because I don't keep bread flour on hand anymore, but the crust still comes out wonderful!

We like our pizza fairly thin, and we only use half the dough for one dinner, so you may need to adjust cooking times if you like your pizza with a thicker crust or if you use all the dough for a larger pizza. I freeze the remaining dough in a bag and thaw it in the fridge when I'm ready to use it.

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

Stir in flour, salt and oil until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Turn 1/2 the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round about 1/4" thick (this makes a very thin 10" pizza). Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal.

Top as you prefer and bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
