      This is a wonderful crust and I plan to make it again. I made one large pizza and the crust was crispy on the outside and had a wonderful chewy texture and great taste. The dough was nice and responsive and easy to spread in the pan after it rose. Thanks for sharing!

      We really enjoyed this recipe. I used my Kitchenaid mixer and just let the dough rise right in the mixing bowl. I forgot to brush the crust with the oil prior to par baking but I don't think it mattered. The crust was really good, crusty on the edges and nice and chewy on the inside. I used 3 1/2 cups of flour and it was really easy to work with. I'll use this one over and over. Thanks

      Ok, Kit_Kat- you're right, it is the PERFECT crust! There was more dough than I'd use for a single 16", but that's ok- we made cheesy bread with the excess- texture was light, bubbly, crisp on the outside, and chewy/tender on the inside. Absolutely perfect! Thanx! :)
