SO HOW'D IT GO?

First let me state that i am a TERRIBLE pizza dough maker. That being said...
I went the no yeast route because i didn't have any. Cooked it for 15 minutes after the 5 minute prebake. I added itatalian seasoning to the dough and a little sugar. It's pretty bad lol...
I will try this with yeast in the future (77 people can't be wrong about a good pizza dough). I also think i'll roll it out thinner next time. All the pictures shown were of nice fluffy pizzas so i didn't want to roll it out super thin, but i guess you have too. Thankfully i didn't have to purchase any additional ingredients to make this.

WAY too salty. My instincts said no, but I added the 1tsp of salt.

It's like eating the sea, baked into bread. I would use a quarter the amount of salt, if that.

Otherwise, good recipe.

1 teaspoon works great, did you use 1 TABLEspoon??

I was thinking the same thing...I had to go back and look at the recipe (I make it all the time) to make sure it didn't SAY one TABLEspoon..and I just always used a teaspoon. I actually don't even measure it.

great easy crust! i used ww flour, olive oil, and added a few pinches of sugar to the yeast mixture. i kneaded the dough slightly and put it in a bowl covered in a tea towel for 20 min and it had already doubled in size! i rolled out maybe a 10-12 inch crust? it was a rectangle so i'm not sure:)
any ways, it turned out great!

Thank you so much for this recipe.  I didn't know pizza crust could be so easy to make.  I threw my pizza together in no time. Spread the crust with marinara sauce.  Topped it off with caramelized red onions & sauteed baby bellas. I then added some hot pepper rings to spice it up a bit.  The only change I made to the recipe is that I used 1/2 wheat flour & 1/2 white flour.  Next time I'm going to add some herbs to the crust.

So after making a dddeeeeelightful hummus for my lunch tomorrow, I realized that I had ZERO pitas/bread/crackers/fresh veggies to eat it with. It's late and I was in a pinch. And then AH HA!! I remembered this recipe. I got to work and made 8 whole wheat 'pitas' in about half an hour!! It's great, they smell and taste yummerific. Thanks for the recipe!!
