SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was the best pizza crust I've ever had and my mother and boyfriend agree! I've made it twice since then and am going to make it again tonight. I'd give it 100 stars if I could; thank you so much!

Mmmmm. So good. I made this with 3/4 cup ww flour, and 1/2 cup ap flour and a pinch of thyme. Topped with pizza suace, diaya mozz cheese, mushrooms, red bell pepper, spinach, and purple potatoes. It was great! My mum thought I had bought the crust :)

These were great!
I doubled the recipe and got two medium sized pizzas, and both are about 8-10 slices each. I added black pepper, twice the salt, basil, rosemary and 'mixed herbs' to the dough. It came out very well! I prebaked the crusts for 5 mins each on a baking sheet and both browned a wee bit, I baked them with the toppings directly on the rack. They were quite soft and bready, but in a 'pizza crust' way, and just how I like it! Very good.
I put cheese on one (*sigh* omnis, when will they learn) and probably couldve left it to brown a bit more in the oven, however, I wasn't eating that one, and I was hungry! So out that one came and my mother, brother and a family friend took it to pieces! Went down very well.
I put a garlic white sauce on mine in place of cheese and... wow. The first bite, garlicy, tomatoey, herby bready goodness!
And for my entire pizza, with olive oil in the dough, it was only 603 calories (before toppings.) Amazing! Next time I'll replace the oil with applesauce and see how that turns out. Can't wait for lunch tomorrow, thanks a whole lot! Who knew pizza was so easy ;D

For a lot of years I was frustrated at how much time it took to make homemade pizza, mostly because of the dough. My husband and I got very tired of using biscuit dough because it was there and fast, but really is not a replacement. I ran across this recipe sometime last year and we both just loved it so much it has been on our fridge for months.

One of the biggest reasons I love this dough (other than it's fabulous!) is I can have a whole personal pizza on a crust that is the same calories as a single piece of bread! the only modifications I made was I use 3/4 c. white flour and 1/2 c. pastry grind whole wheat, I don't use any oil on the outside, I let it raise some, and I divide one batch into 8 pieces. This makes for a really cracker like dough (that I've always hated before with pizza, but not now!) because I roll out each piece about 6 inches around. It makes me happy that I can have a 'whole' pizza with everything on it that I love but not having to feel guilty about the calories! We usually pile the topping up until they almost won't stay on since they are the best part, but with the smaller portions you really aren't eating anymore than you need. The extra crusts can be partially baked ahead then frozen and just grabbed when we get the urge for some pizza.

The other day we had the crusts with some of the leftover filling from gooey grilled cheese sandwiches (The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook) and we both found it very 'musy' (as in: we must have another, and another, and another...)  :-D

Woohoo! I found my pizza crust! I doubled it for my fiance and I, added a couple teaspoons of garlic powder and some shakes of basil. Only put a few shakes of salt, too. I also added 2 tablespoons of cornmeal which gave it a nice texture. I didn't bother putting oil on it before the toppings. It was sooooo good! Very very easy indeed. Can't wait to make it again tonight! Thank you!  ;)b

Made this tonite.  Super easy to make, roll out, etc.  I added oregano to the crust dough and it was great.  I accidentally put sauce and oil on before the initial 5 minute bake and it still turned out great.  Just added a bit more sauce.  THANK YOU for this recipe. Very handy to have one as it is super super hard to find a store crust that is vegan and super hard to find a vegan recipe that doesnt require 2 hours to get your pizza done!!

The recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast.  I used a 1/4-ounce packet of yeast, which is 2-1/4 teaspoons, and it seemed to be okay.

I've been reluctant to make homemade dough because I already have a hard time rolling out the pre-made dough you can buy in the store.  At the same time, I'm reluctant to pay $5 for a vegan pre-cooked crust.  My craving for a buffalo chicken pizza finally got me to try this dough.  It's so easy!  The gluten doesn't have as much time to develop, so getting it spread out in the pan was simple with floured hands.  I slathered on bbq sauce, nacho FYH "cheese", topped with chopped Gardien "chicken" tossed in spices, and vwala!

This is great pizza dough! Rolls out nice and has a great taste. My husband made a double batch and it covered the large pizza tin we have.

^^ This is one of the best pizza crusts I've made! I couldn't find out if Meijer's natural pizza sauce was vegan (I didnt see organic sugar when I was at the store) so I just put some soy mozzerella on it, and it turned out great!1 I would like to try it with the sauce though. Awesome recipe!!

5 stars from me.

Because of certain comments here, for fun, I halved the recipe making 2 small pizzas; 1 with, 1 without yeast.  They were both great, only the yeastless, as to be expected, was a thin crust.  If I had no yeast, I'd do this any time. 

The yeastless one, I have NO doubt, would be great to use for appetizers. I'd do a pile of mini's adding cracked pepper, maybe 1 T. parm-a-like cheeze, for toppings of Baba Ganoush, Mushroom or Olive Tampenade,r Eggplant Caviar, or even salsa.

If a softer, rather than crispy crust is desired, put a pan of water under the baking plate.
