Here is my recipe that i made & use often:

Home-made Pizza Dough & Sauce Ingredients:

1 can crushed tomatoes ( 28 Oz.) [ Hunts makes a good one]	
1 small onion finely chopped	
1 tsp salt	
1 Tbs olive oil	
1/8 tsp black pepper	
1 Tbs basil	
1 Tbs oregano	

On medium heat saute onions in the olive oil for a few minutes.  Add 
the tomatoe sauce, salt, pepper & herbs.  Stir from time to time, 
cooking for 20 min.

Food Processor Dough:

1 cup water(room temp)
1 pack yeast
1 tablsp olive oil (optional)
1 teasp salt
+/-3 cups Bread flour (always best when using yeast)


Pour water into processor, add yeast - give a quick pulse. Add about 
1 cup breadflour, salt & oil - give a few quick pulses. Add 1 1/2 cup 
more breadflour & process to form a ball - adding more flour as needed.

The dough should not be sticky, so adjust the flour used to get a 
fairly firm, smooth dough.

Remove from the processor bowl & place on a floured surface to knead 
it a few more times by hand.

Place the dough in a covered bowl to rise til double +/-1 1/2 hours. 
Remove from the bowl, punch down & form into two balls that can be 
rolled out into two 12" pizzas.

You may want to fold over the edges, to give an edge crust/rim to 
contain sauce & ingredients

bake @ 450F 12 min.
