"Different flavorings can be kneaded into basic pizza dough for some delicious variations. Prepare the dough as usual, letting it double in bulk; punch it down and knead in the flavoring of your choice until it is well distributed. Refrigerate the dough for 15 to 20 minutes before stretching or rolling it out or let it go through another rising before shaping it.
Note: Sometime flavored doughs become sticky after the additional ingredients have been kneaded in. If this happens, simply knead in a small amount of flour until the dough is smooth and no longer sticks." Prosciutto or Sausage Dough:
