“So easy and versatile. Not to mention great tasting. I usually make this into one large pizza, one medium deep dish or two small pizzas.”

  4. Pour oil over dough and knead before shaping into a ball.

  9. These are some other variations:
  10. Add Italian Seasoning to the dough before setting to rise.
  11. Add chunks of cheese or shredded cheese while adding in the water.
  12. Use wheat flour in place or white flour.
  13. Roll pieces of string cheese into the edges to form stuft crust pizza (one of my hubby's faves).
