Excellent, easy to follow directions, however the end result for me was too soft, to much like bread--not chewy enough, and rather bland.

Very clear and detailed instructions so even I was able to make a good crust. It is very yeasty so next time I will reduce the amount of yeast.

Amazing. Of course it is--it's by MEAN! Made this the other night and it produced absolutely the best pizza I've ever made. We loved this crust. Thanks mean! (miss you!)

If I could give this 10 stars I would. If you love making your own pizza dough this is a must try. The dough turns out beautiful, there is nothing like working with a good dough. I used the full amount of yeast and let it raise 3 times. A very tender dough. Thanks Mean Chef

I use less yeast and I use a little over 1/2 cup wheat flour and the rest regular flour and it is wonderful!!! After trying several pizza dough recipes my husband tasted this one and couldn't stop saying how good it was!! Thanks Mean Chef!!

Wonderful! I made this up this afternoon, tripling the recipe (all but the yeast,which I doubled). I then punched it down twice before turning it over to the family members to make their own pizza's. Some rolled it thick, some rolled it thin. Some baked it a long time, some pulled it out fairly quickly. All were completely satisfied with their results. Even my teen son, who straggled in late, and who's dough got a 3rd degassing, loved this recipe. It's the only one I need. Thank you once again Mean. You've done it one more time!

Wonderful recipe. I have tried 6 different pizza crust recipes previously. None of them worked out the way that I wanted them too. This was by far the EASIEST and the BEST of all of the recipes. Not including the waiting time while dough was rising, this pizza took about 10 minutes of effort on my part. Both a thin crust and a thick crust version of this pizza dough turned out perfectly. Thanks again Mean Chef!

This is a great recipe as I like the yeasty flavor too but next time I will add spices. Meanie your instructions are right on (but it still would be easier in the machine, sorry)! BF who used to own a pizza parlor helped and so he knew what he was doing. We will be making this one again! Thanx

This dough is an absolute dream to work with! I like a fairly thin crust and I found I was able to do two 16-inch pizzas out of it. I used my bread machine to make the dough (sorry, Mean--my bread machine is my friend). I did have to add a couple of extra Tbsp. of water, but that didn't surprise me since it is winter and I live in a dry climate. Thanks for another great recipe!
