Basic Pizza Dough


Ok, I know this is going to sound crazy, but I have have been trying to learn how to make a good pizza dough for a long time. The simplest dough seemed imposable to me. It would not rise, it would not come together, it was sticky, it was icky. No matter what it was it surely was not dough. Then came this great recipe. I hope you guys give it a go. It is easy to make and taste great too.
