This dough recipe freezes well so you can make one pizza now and freeze one for later.
When using this dough to make pizza I preheat the oven to 450° F and back with desired toppings for 15 – 20 minutes.
You can substitute dried herbs if desired but the flavor is much more noticeable with fresh herbs. When using dry herbs sub the following: 1 tsp dried thyme, 1 tsp dried rosemary, 1/2 tsp garlic powder.
