Question: Can you cook pizza dough in a regular oven?

Sure! Try using a pizza stone it you have one and preheat it with the oven- that will give you a lot of crisp texture to the crust. If you don't have one- partially cook the crust prior to adding the toppings. It will help to keep the toppings & sauce from making the crust soggy.
I have a ceramic pizza stone ( that I mostly use on the BBQ) and a cast iron Mario Batali Pizza Pan and griddle that I use in the oven for pizza & calzones. Both are fantastic and give me that crisp crust I am looking for.
Before I have either, I had been known to bake my pizza crust on a baking sheet or in a large cast iron frying pan.
