This recipe worked really well for me. I chose to use my kitchenaid mixer instead of the processor and cooked the pizza on my grill. The crust had a perfect crispy crust. i will use this recipe again. Thanks!

This is a great recipe. My kids say I should open a pizza shop with this one. A few changes, though. I used garlic flavored salt and only devide the dough in half, that makes for a thicker crust. Also worked well in a jelly roll sized pan.
