I'd like to learn how to make pizza dough.  We make our own pizzas because chain food pizza is terrible and that is all we have around here.  Normally, I buy shells from the grocery store but I want to take it a step further.  So, suggestions on good dough recipes?  Tips on making the dough?

I got this from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day...

OLIVE OIL DOUGH

1-3/8 cups lukewarm water
3/4 TBSP granulated yeast (3/4 packet)
3/4 TBSP salt
1/2 TBSP sugar
1/8 cup olive oil
3-1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour


Mix yeast, salt, sugar & olive oil with water

Mix in flour

Cover (not airtight) and allow to rest at room temp until dough rises and collapses (or flattens on top), approximately 2 hrs

The dough can be used immediately after initial rise, but is easier to handle when cold. Refrigerate in lidded (not airtight) container & use over next 12 days

Last week was my first and only attempt at pizza dough (so far), but turned out good... made two medium pizzas.

went to a pizza making party Sunday, not being on Facebook, didn't get the info that everyone was supposed to make everything from scratch (pizza cookoff)

can't beat the $1 doughballs from TJ's, but I will make the real way next time.

Mine.

I usually get a little fancier with it, and mix some herbs into the dough. You can't really taste it much, but the speckles are purdy.

Bobby Lupo -  Xantham gum is essential if you want the dough to have elasticity: where you can toss it like a pro.

 If you use a high gluten flour then Xanthan gum isn't necessary.
