    If you have a bread machine, set setting to #10
    If you don't have a bread machine you will have to knead by hand.

    1 Cup Warm tap water
    1 Tsp. Salt
    1 Tbs. Sugar
    1 1/2 Tbs. Butter
    2 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
    1 Tsp. Yeast

    knead together for 30 minutes, then let rise for 1 hour

    I make Pizza once a week and it is great, try it.

    1 lb/500 gm strong, white bread flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp sugar
    1/2 pint/300ml hand-warm water
    4 tbs olive oil
    1 tsp quick action dried-yeast
    If you have a bread maker follow recipe and set to dough cycle
    If not, mix ingredients, knead by hand for about 10 mins and leave in a warm place, covered with a damp, clean tea towel, to double in size, about 1 hour
    From now, machine or hand is the same
    Knock back the dough, simply, that is, re-knead
    divide into four pieces and form into large, round rolls
    squash each down to about 6 - 8 inches diameter, it is easy to see that at this stage you can make them to the size you want by the initial division, may be making 8 smaller, or 1 giant, whatever you fancy.
    Cover with the tea towel and leave for about half an hour, gently press the dough with a floured finger, if it springs back it has proved enough.
    Bake in a pr-heated oven, start at 250 then turn heat down to 200 just after putting in, also you will get a better result with a water bath in the oven to create steam
    Bake, about 20 mins, have the odd look, you don't want these to be crusty and brown like bread because they will be over cooked when you make your pizzas.
    Cool and bung into the freezer until needed.
    If you are going to make your pizza/s now still cook before topping and then put back into the oven to cook the topping.

    It's delicious, inexpensive and extremely easy to make.
    Hope this helps!

    Simple answer:

    Just use this basic recipe:

    500 grams Strong / Bread flour (White) ~ 100%
    5 grams yeast ~ 1%
    300 grams lukewarm water ~ 60%
    10 grams salt ~ 2%

    Knead for 10 mins, prove then make your base, bake @ 200 celcius for 10 mins max!
