This recipe did not give me the traditional pizza dough taste. I feel it needed more yeast and about 1/2 teaspoon more salt. However, it was very easy to work with and produced a crunchy crust. I have been using the Sicilian Pizza Dough recipe by Nick Stellino for years and still prefer that one.

This was a great recipe! I added some dried Italian seasoning to the mix and it was a good thing to do. Also, it was SOooo much nicer to work the dough ball as wet with olive oil instead of the traditional dry with a flour dusting. Furthermore, the pizza crust cooked up with a slight browning/crusting effect on the bottom because of the olive oil. I will have to agree with another reviewer, however, that it made quite a large and/or thick crust upon which to build the pizza. Plenty of dough with this recipe. The dough ball is easily big enough to halve and make 2 pizzas, which is my plan for tonight! Thank you for this great recipe! Pete
