Turn out the dough on a clean, floured surface. Gradually add the rest of the flour and knead dough for about 7 minutes until elastic. Place the dough in a bowl, cover, and let rise for 45 minutes.
# For sauce, heat small saucepan with oil. Add garlic and onions and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes and stir. Add spices and bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
# When dough has risen, grease two pizza pans and sprinkle with cornflour. Grease fingers and pat dough into pizza pans. Bake crust for 20 minutes at 375F (190C).
# Remove from oven and spread pizza sauce over the crust. Place meat and veggie toppings around pizza. Cover with shredded cheese. Bake for another 20 minutes.
