Mid-week Munchies--Pizza

I make a homemade pizza about once every two weeks for dinner around here and I've used this crust recipe for quite some time now.  I found the original recipe online (somewhere) and though it is a bit thick..its nice and soft and has a great taste!  I also can my own pizza sauce and like it much better than store bought sauce..its light and not thick like the kind from the store can be..almost tomato paste-y.  I use Mrs. Wages mixes in case you the pizza sauce and the salsa!!!

Pizza Dough

1 package fast rising yeast
1 cup warm water
3 cups all-purpose flour (can use whole wheat if thats what you like)
1/4 cup olive oil

Mix the yeast and water in a bowl until the yeast is dissolved.  Mix in the olive oil and flour, gradually, until all is incorporated.  Knead dough while still in bowl and cover with dishcloth for a couple hours to let rise.  Press out into pizza witn your favorite toppings and bake in a 425 degree oven until cheese is melted..takes about 15 minutes or so!
