    PCrocker's Note:

    This homemade pizza and a movie is a Friday night tradition at our house. It makes two pizzas but sometimes it's fun to make smaller ones so everyone can put their favorite topping on their own pizza. I use Easy Pizza Sauce #98804.

      I halved this recipe thinking it would be too much crust. I easily could have made a full batch and had a 16 inch pizza with fairly thick crust. I added some garlic powder and it tasted great. Also, I placed it on my pizza stone using corn meal so it wouldn't stick to brown the crust for ten minutes before adding toppings. This worked out great. Overall, it's not the kind of crust I'm going for, but it's much better than most I've tried.

      Overall: 4/5 stars
      Flavor: 5/5 stars
      Texture: 4/5 stars
      Crispy on the outside, soft chewy on the inside: 3/5 stars
      Puffiness while cooking: 2/5 stars

      Final thought: Good, easy to make crust if you're in a hurry, but not going to be the best pizza crust you've ever had.

      The crust was so so. One of the things I had received in positive feedback is that it wasn't flakey. When I was going through preparation, the dough didn't rise which didn't appear to hurt anything. I found my pizza sauce, but I think I can do better with the pizza crust. Thanks for the recipe.

      This was a very good basic crust. It came out nice and crisp with a good chewy texture. I made one crust a little thinner than the other and liked that one better. Next time I won't prebake the crust as long because it did get a little dried out. I will definitely make again.
