Wonderful recipe. As usual I waited until the last minute to decide what to make for dinner. I saw this recipe and thought how nice it would be to have a pizza. So I made this crust and it came out wonderfully. Definately a keeper.


;D This recipe is awsome. I used 1 packet of yeast and it came out superb. The dough was sticley at first but I kept working with it and it came to be perfect.  I used a homemade pizza sauce and used MorningStar sausage crumbles, spinach, 1 yellow onion, 1 red onion as toppings. Finishing the top off with some vegan soy motz chesse made me die and go to heaven.


This recipe was PERFECT!
I subbed 2 TBSP applesauce for the oil and wholewheat flour for the white, and added 1 TBSP Italian seasoning into the dough. Also, when mixing the dough just prior to "rolling" it, I added a few finger-splashes of water because it seemed a little dry. But it came together nicely, and since it was too sticky for my rolling pin, I ended up flattening it out with my hands. This made for a nice, thick, chewy crust...which I l.o.v.e.d.
Thank you for this recipe! It truly was "easy, yummy, and quick".


Luda Blue, the pizza could be baked on a pizza stone, if you have one and want to use it.

Easy, quick, and unbelievably delicious. I ended up using half whole wheat and half white, and it turned out perfect!


I bake mine on a simple metal baking sheet and it's good every time, never used a pizza stone but I'd imagine it would work.


This might be a silly question, but... what do I bake this on?  I don't have a pizza pan or anything.  Should what I used be greased, ungreased?  Thank you for your help.


WOW!! I made an extremely nice thin crust pizza with this recipe, and my omni boyfriend requested that I make it again tonight! He said this is way better than any greasy takeout pizza. I think I found a great way to spice this up: 1 tsp each of dried basil and oregano added to the dough, a bit of extra flour (it is a little too sticky this way) and less salt and some replaced with garlic salt. I also used EB instead of oil. Stretch dough as thin as humanly possible and squeeze the outside into a crust. For toppings, i chop up equal parts orange bell pepper, tofurky italian sausage, red onion and toss with a lot of minced garlic in  olive oil,  add FYH Gourmet" Monterey Jack"(sooo good for pizza) and some basil on top. It is seriously good. (used AP white flour for this) Thank you SO much for the recipe.


I was really, really skeptical of this recipe, but my boyfriend and I were starving, wanted lunch quickly, and had toppings on hand, so I tried it out. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. For the small amount of time invested, it's not a bad crust at all. It won't replace "normal" pizza crust (as in, one that requires kneading and rising) because those are better, but this one is great in a pinch. My only complaint is that it was more bread-like than crust-like. I doubled the recipe, used half white and half wheat, olive oil, and topped it with Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet Mozzarella cheese, veggie pepperoni, sliced mushrooms, and green olives. Yum! It made about a 14-inch pizza, and we have 3 slices left! Thanks!


This recipe is wonderful!  :D

I use whole wheat flour when making this, and it turns out very well.

Alongside that, its very quick and easy... a plus for those with busy schedules (or who are just plain lazy... like me...  :P)


I've made this is a few times and it's so good! the only thing is i felt like i needed to had more flour.  i usually add kalamata olives, pizza sauce, soy mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and morningstarm farms sausage crumbles (which taste exactly like sausage by the way and i highly recommend them) on top. yum!
