New York-Style Pizza Crust

Top Review by Mommy2two

I've found my HG pizza crust, thank you! I have made this and eaten it fresh, and I have also made it (up to the point where you form it into the crust) and frozen it for future use. It works beautifully if you thaw it in the fridge all day, and then let it sit at room temperature for about an hour before you start forming your crust. The flavor is great, the thickness is perfect, I love this dough. I always use bread flour in this recipe, and I have quadrupled this recipe with great results. We like to make our own mini pizzas with this recipe, and my kids love having their own pizza that they made themselves. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
