A nice change from typical pizza crusts. Prep time includes rising times.

This makes a fantastic pizza dough. I made one plain for pizza and put the herbs in another to make cheesy breadsticks. They both turned out great. I used brown sugar instead of white refined sugar, and added vital wheat gluten also. Thanks for posting this.
