Hi, nubcake. Welcome to DC

If you post your recipe and method for making pizza, we would be better able to offer suggestions.

I use store bought dough, But I know the instructions there say to bake at 450 F for about 10-15 min +/- a few .

I also use a stone or perforated pizza pan and the crust comes out nice.

Ive tried making my dough in the past , and its just too messy and unpredictable for me. So now i just spend the $1.29 and get the pre-made dough, roll it, bake it ....

I have been using this reipe I found in NY Times. Turns out very well. Also, I cook all pizza on my gas grill. Apparently I can't post the URL because I don't over post as much as others. I'm sure a search of their website will bring it up for you.

Try 375 in a well preheated oven on a pizza stone which will be up to about 400 for 20 minutes.

For my thin crust pizza I use a stone and

heat my oven to 550. It only takes 5 to 6 minutes for cheese pizza, another minute or 2 for pizzas with extra toppings.

Baking pizza at 300 degrees is far too low to brown the crust and cook the pizza properly. I have been making pizza for years and have several books on the subject. They all recommend a temp no lower than 425 for pizza and for an average of 10 minutes. I keep mine at 475-500. You may notice that the pizza parlors keep their temps around 700 to 900 degrees. Wood fired pizza ovens are kept no lower than 750 so take a lesson from the pros. Raise the temp and be sure to bake your pizza on the lowest rack postion. It helps to have a pizza stone so that the crust will brown beauifully. Heat the stone at 500 for about 1 hour. Perfect pizza every time. Can't argue with success.

Yes cook the pizza crust at a higher temperature and for a shorter time, and this is what I do:
I coat the pan (when I use one, or at least when I press it out), with olive oil, then with some corn meal, it gives it a good texture. Then top it while pressing it out with olive oil and corn meal. Now you have a slight thin dough between two layers of olive oil and corn meal. When you cook it then it will brown nicely. I prebake my pizza crusts and then finish cooking them with the toppings.
