Recipe by tigra

This is a version of the dough that Panago Pizza makes. It is quick and delicious and you can also use to it make focaccia Bread. This recipe was sent out with a pizza we order recently and I plan on using it regularly. Makes 2 12" pizzas.

Yum! I made this tonight (never made homemade pizza dough before). After splitting the dough in half, I prebaked for ten minutes before adding sauce and toppings to bake again for another fifteen minutes. The crust was delicious.
