This turned out really well with good flavour and texture. I will use this recipe again. I had to use a little extra water in mine as the bread machine was making a thumping sound.

I mixed with my hands and kneed the bread "old school". Still came out great! I made 6 medium size pizzas!

I thought this was very good. I used half white/half wheat flour and added 1/2 tsp garlic powder. I also had to add more water as several reviewers stated. I added more than 1/4 cup because it was so dry; when I pulled it out of the machine to knead it, it was a little sticky and I added a tablespoon or two of flour and then it was perfect. The crust seemed to rise in the oven making it a little thick. We had no pizza left which means my kids liked it, too.
