  1. In metal mixing bowl, add flour and salt. Mix.
  2. In large glass mixing cup add yeast.
  3. Then warm water, not lukewarm, warmer.
  4. Stir. Add sugar slowly, and stir once.
  5. It should start to bubble. That is called proofing.
  6. Pour yeast mixture into flour mixture and slightly stir and add the can of beer. Mix.
  7. Add more flour if necessary. I have found I need about 1/3 cup more flour but it seems to depend on the weather. The dough should stay together when pressed. Separate into two portions. Pack each portion togetrher with your hands.
  8. Preheat over 425*.
  9. Spray Pam on two pizza pans.
  10. Place each portion in the pan. Oil your fingers and press the dough from the middle out until the pan is covered. Don't worry if it looks a little uneven, that is ok. If you want to prick with a fork you may.
  11. Bake about 7- 10 minutes. Take out.
  12. Note: This prevents soggy crusts.
  13. Add any toppings. Bake until crust is slightly brown and toppings are hot and cheese melted. Usually 15 minutes,.
