Hi Jason,
The bubbles are caused by small air pockets in the dough that will expand dramatically with the high heat. Thicker bases will be more prone to have this effect but even the thinnest will bubble.

Most actually try to rid the dough of all these air pockets by pushing them out with fingers when stretching out the bases. If you don't push them all out, you will end up with the large crispy bubbles. If it then bubbles too much during cooking, just quickly take the pizza out and prick the bubbles with a knife to deflate.

Be careful not to leave too many small air pockets, it's amazing how quickly they expand and how big they grow.
