Bake for 8-10minutes or until edge of crust is golden brown and the topping is bubbly.
For thick-crust pizza: Grease a 13- or 14-inch pizza pan. If desired, sprinkle greased pan with cornmeal. With greased fingers, pat dough into prepared pan, building up the edge. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 to 45 minutes or until nearly double. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Add desired topping. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more or until the topping is bubbly. Makes two 11- or 12-inch thin-crust pizzas or one 13- or 14-inch thick-crust pizza (6 servings).
