Boboli Pizza Crust

So I wanted to make individual mini pizzas yesterday for the Super Bowl, and I went looking for a new recipe for crust that you can bake in advance, sort of like Boboli. I think I found a pretty good one, so I thought I'd share. It takes some time for rising, but it tastes very good. One batch of dough makes 2 regular pizzas or about 5-6 mini pizzas.

1 C hot water
3 C flour
1 t salt
2 T olive oil
1 T sugar
2 t yeast
1 t minced garlic
2 t parmesan cheese
1 t italian seasoning
parmesan cheese, to sprinkle

Mix all ingredients except hot water and oil in mixer. Add water and oil and knead for 2 minutes. Let rise until double in size, about 1 hour. Form into pizza crusts, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise again. Poke with fork to avoid air bubbles. Bake 5-10 min at 450 F until light brown. Cool and freeze or use right away.
