Melvin and I love making pizza dough from scratch. It's super-tasty, crazy-cheap, and really easy. After a few months of experimentation, I think we nailed down the perfect pizza crust.

yummy yummy ingredients:
1 package yeast
1 cup warm water
2.5 cups flour (all purpose, whole wheat, or any combo)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tblsp (olive or other) oil

yummy yummy directions:
-dissolve yeast in warm water
-combine the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon or in mixer with dough hook
-mix in any fresh herbs. i <3 rosemary.
-add oil and yeast-water slowly
-mix until it looks like dough. let it sit in a bowl for 1 hour (when in a hurry you can shorten this, but the longer it sits the better)

preheat oven (and pizza stone if you have one) at 400 degrees
roll out pizza dough on floured cutting board. if you don't have a rolling pin, use a wine bottle.
place rolled-out dough on cooking sheet or hot stone. pile on sauce and toppings.
bake 20 minutes. cool for 5 before cutting.
