Place the dough ball into a deep large bowl, cover with a towel and let sit (in the warmest place in your kitchen) for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 390 F (200 C).
Divide the dough into two balls.
Place parchment paper on the baking sheet, brush with oil. Place each ball on the paper (or bake them separately) and flatten it with your hands.
Starting at the center and working outwards, use your fingertips to press the dough to about ½-inch thick. Turn and stretch the dough until it will not stretch further. These pizza crusts should make about 7 inch (18 cm) in Diameter.
And lastly, poke the flattened dough with the tines of a fork all over.
Bake in the middle oven rack for 15-18 minutes.
Remove from oven, and if want to use right away brush with olive oil in the middle of the crust, leaving the outside edges as they are so they’ll become nicely crisp later.
Spread the crust with your desired pizza sauce and sprinkle with toppings. Spread the crust with your desired pizza sauce and sprinkle with toppings. Alternatively, you can freeze the baked crust. Let it cool completely, wrap it tightly in a plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 weeks.
After the toppings are added, bake the pizza in the upper oven rack for another 10 minutes or until cheese is perfectly melted.
Sprinkle with fresh herbs and enjoy!
