Great crust. We like our crusts thin and this one worked great for that. Dough was very easy to work with. I divided the dough into three parts and made them "rustic" shaped. I made the Margherita (with fresh mozarella) and made one with just olive oil, portabello slices, red onion slices (sauteed first) and chevre (goat cheese) and the third I topped with tomato sauce, herbs, salami, mushrooms, mozarella and grated Romano. All three were delicious. This will be my go to crust for thin crust pizzas.
5/12/13 This is a great lunch time or a light dinner pizza option, so fresh tasting and different! The grandkids and grant grandchildren enjoy the pizza as will and like to have some more for lunch no.2 is on for today!! I followed the recipe exactly except just a little less onion and I used dried basil and oregano and sprinkled generously! I add a combination of red and yellow tomatoes and sprinkled some Italian mixed seasoning on the top. Absolutely delicious! This clearly proves that you can teach an old dogs some new tricks!! The grandkids are asking for the recipe. THANK YOU !! for posting. Made for the 2013 Variety is the Spice of Life event.

WOW! This was so quick and easy, at least once I remembered that the yeast is in the refrigerator! Did I say that the recipe was easy? Its quicker than ordering delivery and costs nothing to make.
EXCELLENT! My DH and I have lived in New Jersey most of our lives except for two-three years when we were first born. In New Jersey there is at least one pizza shop in every town and some towns have multiples. So we have been hunting over the many pizza dough recipes looking for one we like and this is the one. The only problem I had is I am inept when it comes to rolling out the dough into a pizza. After seeing everyone elses' photos I had great expectations, but for me this dough was no different than any others I have tried to manipulate. My end result with the help of DH was less than perfect. However, thank you for posting such a great tasting pizza dough! Tink you are the best! My toppings consisted of marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and sweet Italian sausage. Made for Variety is the Spice of Life 2013 Event.
Very good! I made the mistake of letting the dough rise too long on the pan, so I didn't get a thin crispy crust, but it was still good Also, I skipped the brown sugar I made mine half pepperoni and half Italian sausage, and we love extra cheese so I upped the amount Thanks for sharing!

What a lucky cooking class Tink....you are a special lady indeed...this is a wonderful recipe. Quick, easy to make, and so easy to vary with terrific results. Made the dough exactly as written, but used toppings that my picky dh would eat. I baked the pizza for 15 minutes in a 448 degree convection oven, turned out perfectly. The pie was topped with a garlic and basil pizza sauce, Italian mozzarella, parmesan reggiano, italian herb mix, coarse sea salt, spicy pepperoni, thinly sliced tomato, sweet white onion and red and yellow sweet peppers. What a treat. Thank you for sharing a recipe, that I will make again and again. The pie was delish, beautiful ingredients on a thin, crunchy crust, that was still tender on the inside....so yummy.
