So easy and fast and wonderful!  I also used olive oil and put a bunch of red pepper flakes and other herbs in with the dough.  It was fantastic!


Since some people said the crust didn't work with all whole wheat I instead did 1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour and the other quarter with plain white.  I also added half a teaspoon of sugar to see if it would do anything.  I'm not sure it affected the crust at all.  I found the dough was far too sticky with just the flour called for in the recipe, but maybe my water was too warm.  I ended up adding maybe another 1/4 - 1/3 cup whole wheat flour.  I added one tablespoon of Italian seasoning to the dough, and that made the flavor awesome.  I kneaded the dough for a minute or two, rolled it round, and braided the edge for a nice-looking crust.  In the end I got one 10" pizza from outer edge to outer edge with a 3/4" crust.  I didn't bother to put margarine on the dough after the first 5 minutes, but the crust turned out well in appearance and flavor nonetheless. Thanks for a great recipe!


amazing! My boyfriend and i have made it the last three weekends in a row. It is a great pre-race meal (we're on the track team). I double the recipe with 1 cup ww flour and 1 1/2 cups white flour, and 1 tablespoon sugar. Thanks so much.


Thank you for this fantasic recipe!!! I was in the mood for pizza, and this hit the spot! so easy!


This didn't work too well for me. Maybe it was because I substituted whole wheat pastry flour, but usually I have no problems using it. It was sort of dry and crunchy, not chewy like I enjoy my pizzas. I would try again, though, with all purpose flour.


I make this recipe all the time now.  it's wonderful, except it calls for too much salt.  I only use a couple of dashes now because I didn't like how salty it was at first.  now it's perfect!
