I wish there were a way to give this recipe zero stars... it was the worst recipe I have ever tried. In fact, it nearly blew up my bread machine ! I added all ingredients as instructed and waited the ten minutes to see if it needed extra water. It was totally dry and the paddle could barely turn. I then added the water a tiny bit at a time but it never did turn out to be a usable dough. I worked in a bakery for 25 years, so "dough" isn't something new to me ! It ended up in the garbage can and I would warn anyone to be careful before trying this recipe.
My extremely picky family actually loves this pizza dough. I add herb too sometimes and they go nuts for it. And it's easy enough for an awful cook like me to successfully make.
