4Pour dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 2 minutes or so. My dough was kinda tough and thick.

5Use butter spray (non stick) and spray a bowl then place your smooth dough in to the bowl, give a quick spray on the dough and cover. Let it set for 2 hours to rise and double in size.

6Once its has risen then you simply punch it down cut it into either 2 or 3 even sized pieces. This recipe makes 2 or 3 pizza's, depending on the thickness you prefer. we made 2, a round and a square.

7After you have fit your dough in to your pan poke it all over with a fork, then top with your choice of toppings.

We had a Cheese pizza and a pizza with onion, black olives, mushrooms, turkey pepperoni and cheese. After baking I rubbed the stick of butter on the crust, then sprinkled garlic powder and seasoning salt.
