My Old Pizza Crust Standby

When we were first married we went to dinner at Jen and Brian Gardner's house. They served pizza and we have been using this recipe ever since.

1 1/2 Tbsp Yeast
1 1/2 C Warm Water
1 1/2 Tsp Sugar
1 1/2 Tsp Salt
4 1/2 Tbsp Oil
3-4 C Flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in Sugar, salt oil and 2 1/2 C flour. Beat until smooth. Add remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Divide in half and place on 2 greased pizza pans or cookie sheets. Roll out and make pizza to your liking. If you want to make it early in the day you can "par bake it" by cooking it 400 degrees for about 8 minutes. If you par bake it you can "dress them up" later in the day. I do this when I am feeding a group and I want to get a lot of pizza out of the oven fast.
