Quick and Easy Pizza Crust Recipe

This is a great pizza recipe when you don’t want to wait for the dough to rise. You just mix it and allow it to rest for 5 minutes and then it’s ready to go!! It yields a soft, chewy crust. For a real treat, I recommend you use bread flour and bake it on a pizza stone, but all-purpose flour works well too. Enjoy!
