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.

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.

Thought it was great, and a lot like PJ's crust. I agree this is too much for one crust, and two little for two. Recommend you follow thee exact directions.

This recipe will make a very good pizza crust, but it won't be any thing like Papa Johns. But I'll let you decide whether that is good or bad.

Great dough recipe! I've tried many before and this is the best and its very quick and easy! I wouldn't put the water that high temp to not kill the yeast I go about 110 deg. - 115 deg. Some people below who say they only made one pizza out of this dough probably did that. This makes 2 pizzas for me. I've used this recipe to make calzones and it came out perfect no pre-bake either. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent! after 15 years of trying,i can now make pizza! such a quick and easy recipe!
i had no faith in this until i "blind baked" the dough, cant believe how much it "fluffed" up.
i used a fan assisted electric oven, set at 220 celsius with more than perfect results!
amazing Thanx!!!!

Best pizza crust I've made yet! I did accidentally burn one of the pies after cooking it with toppings at 450 for 13 minutes. It was on a lower rack than the other. Next time I might pre-bake at 450 and cook at 400 and check after 10 minutes. I didn't add any spices and everyone loved the crust. Next time I'll try garlic salt and italian seasoning. Thanks so much, I will be using this recipe often!

very good and easy. i was kind of worried because there wasn't really any long periods for the dough to rise. but it turned out very light and moist. good stuff =)

I can't tell you how many pizza dough recipe's we've tried. This one by far is the best! Works with pre-cooking the crust for 5 minutes, or just putting the ingredients on and popping it in the oven w/out pre-baking it.
