Pizza Crust Perfection

Thanks Melanie!
Pizza Crust Perfection
1 TBSP yeast
1 TBSP honey
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 Cup warm water
3ish...cups of flour :)

Dissolve yeast in warm water.  Stir in honey and salt.  Gradually stir in flour until dough forms and isn't too sticky. (just add 1/2 c at a time) You need to be able to push it around and spread it flat with your hands, so it can't be sticking to your fingers.  But also be careful not to add too much flour! :)
 Butter a cookie sheet and then sprinkle with cornmeal to help the crust not burn or stick to the pan.  Place the ball of dough in the middle and begin pressing and stretching (this can be tricky sometimes) but take your time.  Don't spread it too thin that it tears.  If it does, just push more dough in that direction and patch it up!   Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes. This recipe yields 1 cookie sheet!
