Mexican Pizza

Here is an awesome recipe that I made up last night.I hope you all will give it a try!

Ingredients:(this is a basic pizza dough recipe.It was my moms)
4 cups flour
1-3/4 cups water
1-1/2 tsp.salt
2T sugar
1/4 cup oil

First preheat your oven to 200.This is a trick I learned to help your dough to rise.Next pour the water(about110 degree's)into a large bowl.Add your yeast and whisk well.Add oil and mix again.Mix together the rest of the dry ingredients and then add them to the water and oil.Mix well.Knead for about 10 minutes.Shut the oven off,and place the dough mixture in there covered with either a wet towel,or greased plastic wrap.Let it rise about 40 minutes.
Punch down the dough.Dust your pizza pans with cornmeal.Preheat oven to 450.Shape the dough.I topped mine with a small amount of spaghetti sauce,a few Tbs. of salsa,garlic powder,and oregano.Then I put cheddar cheese on top.Bake for 10 minutes.Enjoy!Black olives would be a good addition too.Also you could add some red and green peppers and onions sliced thin and sauteed in some olive oil with salt and pepper!I also doubled the dough and froze some :)
