Response to BREADS and ROLLS

5-6 cups flour
1 1/4 teaspoon yeast
1-2 teaspoon salt
2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey

Mix up the dough, let rise till double, punch down, divide into 4 balls. Let rest 10 min. Roll each ball into 12" circle, let rise a bit. Shape heavy duty foil into 11" circle and place on top of each crust, Bake crusts 400ยบ 12 min. Remove foil after 7 min. Brush crust with butter. Let cool, wrap and freeze.

To use: Top frozen crust with sauce and toppings. Bake 425 10-12 min.

To use this fresh, not frozen: shape into circle, let rise a bit, top, bake 425 til done. (15 min. or so?)

***Notes from Tnetter after making these. I put two crusts on pizza stones & two on insulated cookie sheets. I should have greased everything before putting the dough on them, because they stuck, even on the stones.

This crust tastes just like pizza store crust.
