An easy and flavorful cheese pizza that does well on its own, or if you prefer, a great base for toppings.
This pizza crust is quick and easy to make, with minimal raising time and few ingredients. For the toppings, I love nothing more than a good cheese pizza, but I know many feel it's just the base for meats, mushrooms, onions, olives, peppers, and the like. Jazz this up however you want, or leave it simple and perfect as a cheese pizza.

    Slide the oven rack with the pizza stone out of the oven, and gently transfer the pizza to the stone before sliding the rack back inside. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges of the crust are browning and the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Carefully remove the pizza stone from the oven and slide the pizza onto a cutting board. Slice into pieces and serve hot.
