PIZZA DOUGH                                Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2 - 3 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 c warm water (120 degrees)
1 pkg yeast
2 Tbs olive oil plus a little more
garlic salt
In medium bowl, mix together 1c flour, salt, yeast & oil.  Whisk in warm water till well blended.  Stir in 1 – 1 cups flour till you form a soft ball of dough.  Turn out onto a well floured surface and knead until dough is smooth.  Roll out to a circle to fit pan (roll thinner or thicker depending on how you like crust) On greased pan or pizza stone press dough to build up edges slightly.  Brush dough lightly with a very thin layer of sauce, avoiding the edges.  Bake at 450 degrees till dough starts to brown slightly.  Brush crust with remaining olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt.  Add remaining sauce, then toppings, then mozzarella and a sprinkle of parmesan. Return to oven and bake till cheese is melted and turning golden brown.
