      Pretty good. Got a good crunch on it. I don't like a sweet dough, so I only used 1tbsp of sugar.

      I made this with Papa John's Pizza Sauce (#108447) and was shocked how fast my pizza's got eaten. Normally we only need 2 pizzas and still have leftovers. I doubled the recipe and made 3 large pizza's, they were gone! My mom said it was the first time in a long time pizza didn't give her heart burn. I will definitly make again! I did under cook one since it was on the bottom rack, but it crisped up nice under broil.

      This is a great recipe as long as you modify it some. I add onion powder, garlic powder, generic italian seasoning, oregano, corn meal and Kraft parmesan and romano cheese to the crust prior to baking it. When I pull the bare pizza crust from the oven I rub olive oil on the outer crust and layer lightly with cornmeal and garlic powder. My favourite pizza is pepperoni, bacon and feta cheese with extra sauce.
