  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, yeast and salt. Add water and oil; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

  3. Divide dough in half; press into two 15x10x1-in. baking pans coated with cooking spray. Prick dough generously with a fork. Bake at 425° for 12-16 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Spread sauce over crusts; top with pepperoni and cheeses. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into squares.
    Freeze option: Bake crusts and assemble pizzas as directed. Securely wrap and freeze unbaked pizzas. To use, unwrap pizzas; bake as directed, increasing time as necessary.
    Yield: 2 pizzas (9 pieces each).

"I haven't tried the sauce yet, but I've made the dough dozens of times to great reviews. It makes a good calzone dough, also."
