The BEST easy and tasty pizza dough!

I have been looking for an easy and tasty pizza dough to make from scratch for a long time!   A recipe that even when I only have an hour till dinner time-there is still time to make it without it having to rise hours and hours.   I found it!  and modified it a bit!  This is where I found the orginial recipe at


1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
 2 1/2 cups bread flour
 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. * I let it rise for about 30 min.*

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal. Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.
