1pkg (.25 oz) active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (110 degrees, or as hot as your tap goes)
2.5 cups bread flour
2 T olive oil
1.5 t salt
2 t white sugar
2 t oregano (I love oregano! This addition and the next are optional, use what you like)
.5t garlic powder
mix yeast and water, set aside for ten minutes.
mix together remaining ingredients then add yeast mixture. Mix until well combined. Cover and let sit for at least an hour (longer is fine too)
Roll out to the desired shape (mine isn't always a circle), place on a baking sheet (I spray with oil and then sprinkle corn meal and it always slides right off) and cover with your favorite toppings. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. (To feed the three of us I only have to use half the dough)

I've been really enjoying Ragu's Pizza Sauce but will likely experiment with my own sauce at some point.
Oh and I should note this freezes really well before cooking and can be thawed overnight in the fridge. I was sure it would never thaw in time after removing the block of dough from the freezer the night before but it did, no problem. I like to divide the recipe in half and freeze half for later or make cheesey breadsticks (although I have yet to make one that doesn't explode and ooze out the cheese)
