You can certainly use all purpose flour for pizza dough. But the best is a high gluten flour.

I'm assuming this is a bread of some sort. In general, yes, all purpose flour will do in a pinch, but don't expect the best results that you could get for crumb and lift. It should still be edible, if that's what you mean.
