Pizza Crust

Perhaps this has been talked about before but I truly appreciate a good crust. Somehow most chains and private centers never get it the same. Pizza Hut occasionaly gets it right.

I like a crusty crust that is tasty. Pizza Hut sometimes gets it right but most of the time it is too doughy. I order it one a half times through the oven. Sometimes they do it and sometimes they do not.

I have found that when I make my own, I spray the bottom of the dough with olive oil and let it bake a little longer.

Perhaps some of you can add your own ideas.

    Paul.

    Other issues arise. Do you use a high gluten flour when making your crust? Do you use a pizza stone? As for olive oil, I drizzle that on top of pizza.

    All of your pizza questions ARE answered here:

    The secret to a good crust is adding a bunch(relativly) of sugar or honey.. browns up nicely and tastes great.
