Soooo good! And only 70calories per slice (at an average of 8 slices, and sauce that has 60cal. per 1/2 cup), it's fantastic. Although I did burn the bottom of the pizza the first time I made it, this pizza tastes just as good as the market restaurant I went to in central Toronto; a thin crust delight that's sure to please. (Note: Add 1/2 a tsp. more yeast for bigger crust)

I really enjoyed this pizza dough. There is something really satisfying about making your own pizza dough, and I plan to make this one again. I didn't use the brown sugar, sage, paprika or pepper (of the optional ingredients). I did, however, add a teaspoon of Italian seasonings to the flour mixture. I doubled the amount of yeast to 1 teaspoon, also. I used reduced fat mozzarella cheese & regular pepperoni, with a sprinkling of green onion. I used Ragu pizza sauce (tasty with no added sugar, which is always a plus for me). I used non-fat milk as that is what I had in the fridge. I baked at 445*F in my convection oven for 10 minutes - it was perfect. I let the dough rise for about an hour and a half in a well-oiled, covered bowl. I scored the dough after I rolled it out to about 16". I made one large pizza versus two small ones. Tasty and filling and fun! I highly recommend this recipe! Made for I Recommend Tag Game.

Easy to make and super Yummy:) I added a1/4 tsp of onion powder in addition to all of the optional seasonings, and instead of 2 pizzas we made 5 personal pizzas for make your own pizza night. I rolled mine out fairly thin and heaped on veggies and the crust held up great! The kids loved it too.This ones a keeper.

This crust was terrific. It is now my go to crust for pizza. My husband even liked it and he will scarcely touch anything that is all whole grain! I made one large pizza. I added garlic powder, basil and oregano to my dough. Better than frozen! (and dare I say take out? although we don't have that option where we live ;-)
