Pizza dough perfection for a yeast bread novice

I may be able to make a lemon cake with fresh lemon curd filling and bake irresistible brownies, but yeast breads? Not my forte.

So when I successfully made homemade pizza dough (which probably means they are among the easiest of yeast breads to execute) this past weekend, I was ridiculously ecstatic.

The dough recipe yielded enough for two pizzas, so I topped one with cheese for my children and made another topped with bacon and sauteed spinach, garlic, mushrooms and onion for the adults.

My husband vowed never to call for take-out pizza again, but I think he was still under the influence of pork fat when he said it.
