Default Start Page Numbering at... (ID)

I am having a problem in InDesign, I am hoping someone can help me with: I have several ID publications that include the cover in the document. The automatic page numbering is applied on one master page spread, and the cover has it's own master. No page numbers display on the cover pages, but the auto page numbering is starting on page 3 (counting front cover and inside front cover) instead of page 1 where I need it to start. I tried going into the Numbering and Section Options, but Start Page Numbering On will not allow a zero or negative integer. I tried setting a section start on the third page (which should be page 1), but I could not seem to get that to behave either. How can suppress the auto numbering for the first two pages?

My alternative is to create the cover in a seperate document and then recombine them in the compiled PDF, but I would prefer to keep them together if I can find a way...
