    This may seem like a silly question, but should the crust be baked before adding toppings? (Novice Baker, here.. lol) Thanks in advance.

    Pretty good pizza dough. But my search for a pan pizza dough continues.

    Getting five stars because I fixed it, first try came out dry and hard, changed yeast to 1 tbsp and sugar as well 1 tbsp to 1 cup of the warmed water, also had to use 2 cups of bread flour, came out beautiful and soft, great taste and stretchability.

    This recipe is totally worth making and is really easy, too! I baked the pizza for about 10 minutes and it came out awesome.
