Thanks New Food Idea's Magazine - we use this for pizza, calzone and stromboli recipes. For pizza we cook in a very hot oven (240 degrees celcius) for around ten minutes - Stromboli we generally eyeball it.

I can see why this is your favorite "go-to" recipe for pizza dough. The yeast mixture really blooms well and the dough rises perfectly. Will definitely keep this dough recipe on hand as it will work well for a number of things -- pizza being no. 1 on my list. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2014.
