Pizza Dough

Literally the DAY I decided to hop on the plant-based train, my friends decided to have a pizza party. This day marked the beginning of a BYO kinda life... BUT I AIN'T EVEN MAD! My pizza tasted soooo much better than theirs and I didn't feel like crap afterward from all the grease and dense meats. *Gag*
Often, there's butter or milk or eggs or shortening in dough recipes so you can never be to careful! This dough recipe was borrowed from allrecipes.com, credit to whoever "Chef Rider" is. I made my own sauce and topped it with HOWEVER MANY TOPPINGS I WANT, thank you very much. I'm so tired of pizza places making me limit my cravings, man. You really should be careful... too many toppings will make your pizza way too heavy and it all just slides right off...
Feel free to make this recipe your own. The original recipe calls for olive oil, but as with every other recipe I use, I switch it with avocado oil because it's so much better. I hate the taste of olive oil. If you're on a sugar-free diet, you can't really omit the sugar in this because that's what feeds the yeast. As for the flour, I used regular all-purpose flour and there was nothing wrong with it.
