    This is my basic pizza dough recipe. It is good for stromboli also. It takes a bit of time but it is more economical than store bought crusts...and it tastes better too!

      This is such a great recipe! I make this in my bread machine, and then when it's finished the dough cycle, I take it out and let it rest in an oiled bowl for another hour, then roll it out for pizzas. It has become a firm favourite in our family!

      I've been using this dough for months now and boy am I glad I found it! I've tried many homemade doughs, but none gave me the consistency I was looking for. This dough however was awesome! It is now my one and only! Sometimes I add garlic powder and Italian seasoning for some extra pizazz. Thanks for the wonderful recipe! <3

      This was pleasantly easy to make. I kneaded the dough by hand (about 10 minutes) and it came together quickly. I followed the recipe exactly as written. The crust held up really well with sauce, cheese and toppings. 450* for 15 minutes was perfect, too. Great recipe, easy to follow, and tasty, too!
