Pizza Dough

We liked pizza, but couldn't find a local place that served the crust just the way Maria liked it.

Ingredients

1 cupwarm water (70°–80° F)
2 Tbspolive oil
3 cupsflour
1 tspgarlic powder
2 tspbasil
2 tsponion powder
1 tspsalt
1 tspactive dry yeast

Directions

Put olive oil and water in bread machine pan. Cover with 2 cups flour, then add garlic powder, basil, onion powder, and salt. Cover with rest of flour. Make small well in center, and put yeast in well. Set bread machine to "dough" cycle and turn on.

When dough is finished, divide into desired number of pieces, and roll out each piece to desired size. Top with sauce, shredded cheese, and any other toppings (pepperoni, bacon, salmon, onion, artichoke, roast beef, and olives all taste good, though probably not all together). Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes or so, until crust and cheese is browned.

Makes 3–4 thin crust pizzas, or 2 regular crust.
