I made this pizza crust last night and it was really great. Probably the best pizza crust I've ever eaten. I made a few changes - instead of two garlic cloves I pressed in one clove of garlic, instead of dried basil I shredded a couple of leaves of fresh basil and omitted the oregano. Because I was perming my mom's hair I had to let the dough sit for about an hour instead of ten minutes. Not sure if that had any affect on the final product but I did have to bake it for about 30 minutes until the crust was getting brown. I used a metal pizza tray instead of a pizza stone. This recipe is a keeper for me!
I used my food processor with the dough attachment instead of a bread machine, and it worked fine. I also let the yeast sit in the warm water for about ten minutes before I added it to the other ingredients. I added crushed dried hot peppers to the dough. This recipe doubled easily.
I made this crust today. I was very flavorful and easy. I let the dough rise a second time. For 1/8 the pizza including my toppings, it worked out to be 6 weight watchers pointsplus points. I used 1 & 1/2 cups part-skim mozzarella, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, 1 oz lean ham, 1 oz pepperoni, and spices/herbs. 16 servings seemed way too many so I counted it as 8 servings and cut it into 8 slices. A 6-point pizza dinner with pepperoni and ham that is also delicious
