We are having pizza.... 1/2 bacon, onion, green pepper; 1/2 green pepper, onion, black olives, diced tomato... maybe even some cauliflower (in really small pieces).
I wasn't as stated, but it was good!

Yes, the recipe for the crust came off the back of a rapid-rise yeast package. It's rather simple. Somtimes, I like to add italian seasoning or garlic to the dry ingredients.

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 ounces fast rise yeast (package)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons veg. oil

Preheat oven to 400F.

In a mixer bowl, combine 1 cup flour, yeast and salt; mix well.

Combine water and oil; heat to 120 - 130 F, add to flour mixture.

Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a firm dough. Knead on floured surface 3 - 5 minutes.

Divide dough into 2 parts. With well-floured or greased fingers, press each half into greased 12 or 14-inch pizza pan. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of your favorite shredded cheese over dough to prevent a soggy crust.

Spread prepared pizza sauce on each pizza (approximately 3/4 cup of sauce per pizza).

Add your favorite toppings. Cover with shredded cheese of your choice.

Bake at 400F for 25 - 30 minutes (see NOTE below) until edge is crisp and light golden brown and cheeses are melted. Serve immediately.

Note: It may not take the full time. In my oven, it was about 20 minutes.
