How to Make Pizza Dough

No packaged or store-bought dough will give you the tender, crisp crust you'll get if you take the time to learn how to make pizza dough. Takeout pizza might become a thing of the past, once you get a taste of your own homemade pizza. Top the dough with veggies and low-fat cheese and you can turn pizza into a low-calorie, guilt-free treat.
