How to make Crusty Pizza Crust:
Combine the warm water, yeast and 1 tsp of sugar; allow to sit 10 minutes.
In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, garlic powder, baking powder and 3 TBSP of sugar. Add 6 tbsp of olive oil and the yeast mixture. Stir until dough comes together then slightly knead and allow to rise for 1 hour.
Grease each pizza pan with 8 TBSP of olive oil.
Divide the dough into 2 equal portions and mold into balls. Dredge the bottom of each ball of dough well into the cornmeal and then transfer dough to pizza pan; spread the dough out to a 12" circle.
Place sauce and 1 cup of cheese in the center of the circle and using your hands spread out dough even more (this helps dough spread out easier since the dough slides back due to the tackiness of the dough and amount of oil.)
Once you spread out the dough to about a 14-15" circle; top with remaining cheese and toppings of your choice. Brush edges of the pizza with olive oil and sprinkle with 1 tbsp of parmesan cheese and 1/2 tsp of garlic powder for each pizza.
Heat oven to 380 degrees F and bake pizza on the bottom rack of the oven for 15-20 minutes.
