pizza crust

I doubled this tonight and made four pizzas... one to accomodate everyone! Matt's was full of veggies, Bailey's only had black olives and cheese... Emelia had pineapple and cheese and a little canadian bacon (aka ham :) )... and mine had lots of olives, mushrooms and some ham. They were delicious. Matt said better than carryout.

Pizza Crust:
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degress F)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups flour
Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients in and mix. Dump onto a floured surface. Knead into a smooth dough (five minutes or so). Roll out and press down onto a greased pizza pan. Add some pizza sauce and your toppings. Bake at 450 degress F for around 12-15 minutes until the crust looks crispy and lightly browned. Dough can also be frozen as well.

Pizza Sauce
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1/2 cup red wine or water
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil or olive oil
1-2 tablespoon parmesan cheese

Do you have 4 pizza pans? What size do you use.

Do you cook the sauce or just mix it all up! Questions, questions!
