SO HOW'D IT GO?

I used the rapid rise and my dough rose (even while in the fridge).

what kind of yeast should I use? I have active dry and rapid rise instant yeast on hand. I am sure one of those is the right kind but I dont know which one because they measure differently and work differently...

This is a really good recipe. 

The first time I tried it, I didn't roll it out properly and it was a bit bland (I only used 1/2 tsp of salt because I someone said it was too salty with 1) BUT it still tasted like pizza crust to me (which was good considering how skeptical I was).  I used 1/4 cup too much flour (it was half quinoa flour and half white).  I also added onion or garlic powder (can't remember) and oregano. 

The second time I used 1 tsp of oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt in the crust.  I also refrigerated the dough for a few hours before rolling it out (which REALLY helped with it not sticking to my wooden rolling pin).  I thought I did a better job of rolling it out but when I transferred it to a baking sheet it wasn't flat).  It didn't end up baking properly like I wanted it to.  I have to work on my rolling technique.  For the toppings I used (non-vegan) smoked cheddar (which I HIGHLY recommend if you're not vegan) and tomatoes.  It was VERY good.  This recipe deserves 5 stars.  Thanks :)

This is my first review here after lurking for about a week, but this was fantastic! Couldn't believe how easy it was. My roommate saw me start making it and when it was ready just a little while later, she couldn't believe it was already set! Careful not to roll it too thin, though.

KPmustluvcats: instead of rolling the crust, if you hand toss it then it won't come out so thin and cracker-like, also, once you put it in/on your pan, poke it with a fork to vent, kept my crust fluffy and delicious!
isaytomatoes: i topped mine off with mushrooms, onions, green olives, and artichokes!
good luck!

Sounds great---but can anyone tell me what all those delicious-looking toppings I see in the photos are?  I need ideas!

Hi!  You can try red, yellow and/or green bell peppers, olives, mushrooms, fresh spinach, fresh basil, artichoke hearts, thinly sliced red onion, tofu ricotta cheese, fresh tomatoes, pineapple, fake meats... pretty much anything you like will be good on a pizza.

i make this crust when i dont have time fore my 2 hour bread machine crust. i always double the recipe and add garlic and seasonings. it tatses great. the only thing i dont like about it is you cant use whole wheat four, i tried just using a fourth of WW flour and the rest white and it still doesnt come out right. if you use all white flour it tastes great though.
