4 - 5 cups flour
1 tbls instant yeast
3 tbls sugar
2 cups warm water
may need to adjust the flour and water until you come up with a good consistency
using a dough hook mix together, let the mixer knead the dough for you for about 8 minutes, or knead by hand for 10 minutes.
This will give you a crunchy and chewy crust. If you add olive oil, 3 tbls, will give a softer crust.
Most important - you should make your dough the day before you want to use it. It needs to season! Still ok to use it the day you make it but will be better the 2nd day.

you should add some dried herbs to the dough. some red pepper flakes are good in there too!

Long time ago I worked in a restaurant that used frozen bread dough and rolled it out while it was still cold (but thawed of course). It came out really good.

For the family we use a basic scone dough with additions as the mood takes us. ie. fried onions and garlic. It's much more fluffy than a reguar pizza dough, but very good.
Sometimes we make the dough an inch bigger than the pan and put a ring of mozzarella and fresh chopped chillies all the way round the edge. Fold the dough edge over it. Got the idea from a dominos (yeuch!) disaster. I wish i knew what that stuff they "stuff the crust" with was. I'm sure it's used in the manufacture of golf balls

Kelleybean, what's sold as "French bread dough" works well.
