I love this recipe it is sooooo easy and absolutly fantastic. I did find a good trick with working with the dough. Make the dough the night before and place it covered in the fridge over night and makes the dough so much easier to work with.

good work. but i hv a confusion with temperature, is it F or degrees????????

Navid, Member2009 Jun 15
As you can see in the last step it says 400 F which means Fahrenheit. This is about 200 C.

This recipe is the best that I have ever used including ones from pizza cookbooks and cooking tv websites. I was able to spread the dough out very thinly onto 2 rectangular baking sheets and it cooked in about 15 min.I topped the dough with basil pesto, marinated artichokes, slivers of sundried tomatoes, sliced mushrooms and provolone cheese slices. Delicious! Thanks so much for sharing.

I used this recipe to make pizza on the BBQ and it worked great. I chilled the dough before rolling it out and putting directly on the grill with a bit of oil. It was fantastic.

Some commentators suggested chilling the dough before rolling it out. Do you chill it after it has risen? Do you have further comments about doing this?

Nadia, Guest2009 Aug 28
Hi Navid, I have a quick question.Does the honey make it sweet?I'm afraid that the honey wouldtake over the pizza scent.Thanks!

Navid, Member2009 Aug 28
Not at all. It just make it crispier.

Nadia, Guest2009 Aug 30
Ok, thanks! I'm going to make it today.

Becky Pruden, Guest from: Bc, Canada2009 Sep 14

Navid, Member2009 Sep 15
I have not tried to freeze it but usually yeast doughs respond well to being frozen.

I've double checked that I used the correct measurements for all the ingredients and I did but it still came out extremely salty! Is that usual?

If you make in a Standing mixer you have to add the last 1/4 cup of flour 1 table spoon at a time until it stops sticking to the sides of the bowl. Thanks for the eggless recipe :>)

We make a lot of pizza and try a lot of recipes, and this is by far the best pizza dough we have found. Great, subtle, and simple. And yes, it does freeze well. Also here is a tip: use a fork to perforate the dough after you have spread it out over the baking sheet and before you put the toppings on. This helps with the crisping and lets the dough breathe. Cheers.

How and when do you freeze the dough?

Mike, Guest2010 May 01

Excellent recipe. This is my first attempt at pizza dough. I used Pizza dough yeast in the recipe and the dough at least tripled in size when rising---It was a bit sticky but I used flour liberally and it turned out amazing. My fiance is already asking me to make it again!Living in Alberta, we are in desperate need of excellent pizzerias! So, instead of waiting for new shops, I opted to make this recipe and try my hand at it myself. I recommend this recipe to any first-timer! GL.

I use the same proportions except I substitute regular flour with spelt flourThe dough is still very crispy. Regarding chilling dough, do you let it rise first then chill it? Then the next day do you let it rise? counter

WOW!!, Hands down the best pizza dough recipe I have tried. The dough can be rolled out extremely thin without tearing and it bakes up cripsy but soft in the center. It is a perfect thin crust recipe or a great thick crust depending on how you roll it. Thanks SO Much!!!!

Delreal, Guest2011 Jan 14
i have a question does it matter what kind of yeast i use im a young cook myself havent tried dis receipe but i will soon making a pizza myself tonight

This makes a wonderful pizza...easy, quick and delicious!! A new family favorite- Thank you!

Sheri, Guest2012 Mar 10
Good recipe for dough. Wrapping the dough in wax paper didn't work for me, the paper stuck. From now on I'll just place the dough balls in plastic bags. I always top my pizza with drizzles of olive oil and bake on parchment paper right on my pizza stone or lodge cast iron pan.

If I was to freeze the dough do I omit step 6 until ready to bake?

This pizza crust was excellent. I made it using my Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Kneaded the dough with the dough hook for about 10 min. I was a little nervous because I never used this much yeast in a crust recipe before. But the crust was light and airy. I divided the dough in half after it proofed and froze the other half for a later time (I wrapped it in plastic wrap and put it in a Zip-lock freezer bag). Thank you.

This sounds great. Will give it a try. Always looking for something good to add to my menu for my caf?, By The Lake Caf?, in Wabamun, Alberta.

Marilynn, Guest2013 Sep 12
Today I made this dough recipe for the first time in my bread machine. I put in 3 and 3/4 cup of flour. The dough rose up and over the glass on my bread machine. I also added 2 tbls of flour after the first beep. At the end of cycle the dough still seems very wet and elasticity. What did I do wrong. I'm considered a very good cook/baker. I make dough all the time and never have problems. Should I have used more flour? Please let me know. Thanks

Thanks for sharing this! I love pizza dough so much, a good dough makes the pizza. If the crust is not good I dont like the pizza. That is why im so impressed with this dough!

This is the best pizza dough recipe I have ever tried.The only change I make is to use only one tablespoon of yeast. It rises very fast if I use water that is so hot I can barelykeep my hand in it.
