Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line a 12" or 15" pizza pan with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl stir together T.G.I.G.F! mix, sugar, italian seasoning, garlic powder and active dry yeast. Pour 3/4 cup of warm water along with olive oil over dry ingredients and mix on medium high for 2 minutes. Dough will be thick. Using a rubber spatula spread the dough onto the parchment lined pizza pan. Place dough into preheated 200 degree oven and turn oven off. Allow dough to rise 30 minutes then remove from oven. Turn oven back on to 400 degrees. While oven is preheating top with your favorite toppings. I place a layer of provolone cheese on the bottom, then add my sauce, more cheese and toppings. The layer of provolone cheese prevents the crust from becoming soggy. Bake for 20-25 minutes until edges and bottom are light golden brown. If you want to par-bake your crust, simply remove from oven after rising, turn oven to 400 degrees, once preheated place dough in oven and bake 10-12 minutes until just turning a light brown. Allow to cool, wrap tightly and store in the freezer. When ready to use, preheat oven to 400 degrees, allow to thaw, top with favorite toppings and bake for 12-15 minutes until light golden brown.
After many attempts I finally got it right! The perfect pizza crust made with our mix and it's so easy! You can par-bake the crusts, wrap and freeze so you can have delicious baked pizza in a flash!
