My husband and I love this easy to make dough for pizza and calzones... only thing I found is that in my bread machine I have to add the water FIRST, otherwise all the flour won't mix in.

so easy... as for adding the water first, my machine recommends that you do that anyway and make a small indentation into the pile of flour in which to pour the yeast (to keep the yeast from hitting the water too soon and activating too quickly.) Loved the carmelized onion idea for topping.

Great crust! I have been looking for a good crust recipe since I bought my bread machine a few months ago. My only suggestion is to oil your hands before handling the dough!(when you take it out of the machine and out of the bowl) Thanks for the recipe.

WOW what a great recipe!!!! If you are afraid to try to make your own dough, try this!!! The dough has a great flavor, and makes a great pizza!! I also had to add the water first, and followed #16 to get a crispy crust. I cooked it for 20 minutes before adding my toppings (pizza sauce and cheese- i am boring :) ) Thanks karin for posting!!! Who needs take out when you can have this!!

We made little individual pizzas for our kids one night with this. They LOVED it, and even ate the crust, which they usually discard.
One recipe was enough for 3 little kid pizzas and 2 small grown up sized ones.
This is a really delicious recipe, much tastier than delivery. Thanks for sharing!
By the way, 225 C is 437 F, according to Google. I cook mine at 435 since my oven goes up by 5's.

This was my husbands favorite pizza! I cooked it at 425 for 5 minutes without toppings and 15 minutes after toppings....better than delivery

According to the recipe it needs to be 225 Celsius which equated to 437 Farenheit which caused a burnt crust. The temp needs to be adjusted. Other than that it was good.

A great recipe. Sometimes I'll tear the ball in half to make two crusts that are thin and crispy. It also makes great bread sticks. If you are going to be home with nothing to do, you can make a few of these in one day and freeze them. Tip: You'll save a lot of money if you buy yeast in bulk at GFS or another restaurant supply place.

The Family Circus gives this 5 thumbs up (by all 5 members!) This was so easy to prepare! I took the advice of 1moxiemom and baked the crust at 450 for 5 minutes then added my toppings, then back in the oven for 15 minutes. I had them coming from all over the house asking when would the pizza be done...LOL! We'll never buy frozen pizza or "go out" for pizza again!! Pair this with Ultimate Pizza Sauce Ultimate Pizza Sauce and you'll have an awesome meal!

DH didn't get any of the first pizza I made so while waiting for #2 he fell asleep. He got one slice! Pour guy...so I'm making pizza again tonight! Making three this time! Thanks so much!! Definately a keeper!

I use this recipe all the time. I roll out the dough then place it on parchment paper on an inverted cookie sheet. I add toppings and slide it all onto a pizza stone. Easy peezy!
