This dough you can make and use the same day.
- 1 c warm water
- 2 T melted margarine or olive oil

Mix first 3 ingredients and let sit one minute. Add remaining ingredients. Mix together. Turn on floured board; knead 3-4 minutes. Let rise until double. Divide in 1/2 for thin crust. Spread on greased and corn-mealed pan. Bake at 400° with toppings (see note). Watch for crust to turn golden brown.
You can pre-bake the crust and allow it to cool or freeze it to keep. Add toppings and bake until cheese is melted.
