Any one have a good pizza dough recipe they want to share?
If you only want one you've come to the wrong place!

I take a cup of water and microwave it to 110 degrees F, add a packet of dry yeast along with a teaspoon of white sugar and a tablespoon of oil or butter. When the yeast foams I stir in a cup and a half of flour, dump it onto a board. I work in another cup to cup and a half of flour and a teaspoon of salt while kneading for approx. 6 to 8 minutes. I place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with a dish towel. When it has doubled in bulk I spread it in the pizza pan and top it or I put it into a plastic bag and put it in the refrigerator for up to three days. This is enough dough for a 10X15 sheet or two rounds. I prefer to use dough that has ripened in the refrigerator and it also makes the job of making a pizza much easier because most of the work can is done ahead of time. The amount of flour is a big variable, you need to learn to work by feel and by eye to determine the right amount. Have fun!

Does anyone make extra dough or make a recipe of dough specifically for garlic rolls?

I make a batch of dough for two pizzas and freeze one. I've never made garlic rolls with extra dough.

Once I discovered that most pizza/Italian-American restaurants use pizza dough to make garlic rolls, I started doing the same.

Fresh garlic, grated on a micro plane, then steeped in olive oil. I like to add fresh, finely chopped parsley. Pour this over as soon as the rolls come out of the oven and add a generous amount of finely grated parmesan on top.

Try this. Put the stone on a shelf about 6"-9" below the top of the oven. Pizza ovens have low ceilings to reflect the heat back onto the top of the pizza. This will approximate that. You will get a browner crust and some color on the cheese and toppings.

Preheat the oven to a higher temp if you can, around 500F, and let it preheat for a while. It takes a longer time for the stone to reach temperature.

Interesting. So no garlic in the dough? When I make onion bagels, I add onion powder and toasted onion flakes to the dough. The flavor permeates the entire bagel and the onion doesn't burn when you toast the bagel.

It may be the flour you use, the age of the dough, the temp of a commercial oven, the use of flavor enhancers by the pizza shop. Next time you stop in at your favorite pizza shop for a slice be up front and ask them what makes the dough they use special, most will be happy to talk to you. You may not be able to duplicate it at home, but it will help you understand why yours is different.
