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!!

This was great.  I didn't modify anything, and used whole wheat flour.  Actually, I should take that back, since I did sort of modify it - I made it a stuffed crust using some Follow Your Heart Cheddar that I cut up and rolled into the crust.  Some sauce, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, and pepperoni for the toppings, and I could have died a happy man the night I made it.  :)>>>

This is really good and easy!  I like to make it without yeast for a crispier crust, but use olive oil and Italian herbs.  My omni hubbie loves it!  The dough seemed a little dry so I added a tiny bit of water and less salt.

This was FANTASTIC!
I used olive oil, added a half tablespoon of sugar to the yeast, and added Italian spices to the dough. This was super quick and by far the best pizza crust I have made from scratch.
I also split the dough into two individual size pizzas and mixed pressed garlic in with the olive oil that I rubbed on top. Then I piled zucchini, squash, tomatoes, broccoli and soy cheese on top. YUM YUM!

The only problem I had was that, while I was mixing the flour in, it became a little dry and tried to break apart. I just added a couple tablespoons of water to solve that as I kneaded the dough.

I will be making this again and again!

I love recipes like this. I just can't fail with it. It comes out perfect everytime. I like putting herbs in the dough for more flavor and sprinkling cornmeal on the bottom. Its terrific and super tasty. YUM!  ::)

This was easy to make, but the yeast flavor is too strong for me and my husband. I don't really know why it needs yeast.
