This turned out wonderful! This is a great recipe for someone who has never made a pizza dough before (like myself) because the instructions are very detailed and the target texture is described so well. Thanks!

Really a great recipe and I deeply appreciated the details on getting it right. I did reduce the yeast to one tablespoon and it worked just fine if you don't like such a yeasty taste. Thanks for posting this one!

Really easy, but not what we like in a crust. We like a chewy crust and this is really soft. Also, too much yeast for us. I had fun making it though, thanks for posting.

I made this and another pizza dough recipe the other night and this one was wayyyyyyyyyyy better! I loved the honey taste! Tonight I am going to make it again and try using half whole wheat flour and half regular. Thanks!

Wonderful recipe! I have only made homemade pizza twice. Yesterday was my first time and I tried another dough recipe here on RecipeZaar and it was edible but not enjoyable and wasn't what I was looking for in a pizza crust. So today - my second attempt ever at a homemade pizza - I decided to use this recipe and I was very pleased. Not having much experience or success in dough and bread I was so glad it turned out. It was very pleasing to the palate. As a plus the dough was super easy to work with and didn't give me any trouble at all. I made a single huge pizza with it and everyone in my family enjoyed it. The honey was a nice touch. The crust was a little harder than I would have liked but I had to leave it in a tad longer to get the cheese and topping done a bit more. And I think this may have to do with the fact that every oven is different, so I don't blame that on this recipe. So in conclusion, I will be keeping this recipe in my cookbook and will use it for future pizzas and calzones. I may even tweak it to make it my own. Makes a great thick crust or a great thin crust as well. It is a keeper! Thanks!

I made pizza dough using different other recipes and so far this one is by most the best recipe I have ever used! It's fun to make, and very easy to follow. I used only 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast (one packet). I also used thermometer to measure the temperature of the water. The correct temperature activates the yeast, if you have it too cold, yeast won't react, and if you have it too hot, yeast dies. Since this recipe includes salt, you may want to increase the warm water temperature a bit higher, to 120F, and follow the instruction to mix the honey and salt in. After the stiring, your temperature should drop (especially salt brings down water temperature). It should be 110-120 for active dry yeast to react. I manage to make 3 rectangular pizza dough (I don't have round pizza pan). I also experiment the sides to fold in cheese. Yum!

Having read some of the comments that said that dough was too yeasty, I decided to use instant yeast as they do not leave that yeasty taste/smell. So, I did not use warm water, and just mixed everything up in my stand mixer. I doubled the recipe, so when the dough seemed to dry and would not form into a ball, I kept adding water, and even more olive oil. After the first rising, dough still felt a little dry, but during shaping ( after 3 risings ), the texture was fantastic. Sooo easy to roll and shape, and it was not dry at all. I finally had a pizza that looked like a pizza, and it tasted good too, crusty and chewy. Thank you for posting.
