Pizza from scratch!

OK this is the first time that I've ever made pizza dough and I can't believe how freakin' easy it is. Why have I been buying frozen crap for so long??

Here is the recipe I used from
1 pkg. Quik Rise dry yeast (Red Star)
1 c. lukewarm water
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. honey
2 1/2 c. flour (I used white flour that says on the packaging "great for breads")
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (no salt)
1/2 tsp. onion powder (no salt)
Mix yeast in water in glass bowl. Add other ingredients. Mix well by hand. Let sit in bowl 5-10 minutes, covered by towel. Flatten on greased pan. Add your own topping. Bake at 450 degrees for about 12 minutes.

Grease hands for nonstick mixing.

Alright...this was on my list of things to learn to do. I'm tired of frozen crust too. I've got to get over my fear that pizza crust is difficult and give it a try. I'll report back.
