This idea of putting the sauce on top seemed a little strange to us, but it turned out just fabulous! A nice crispy crunch to the crust. We could hear it when the pizza wheel hit it. Just a word of warning, though. I heated my water for 25 seconds and it was too hot to put the yeast in. I had to wait for it to cool a little. Yeast will die at about 140 F, so it will be WAY beyond that at 2 minutes in the microwave. I would test it after 15 seconds. Should be like bath water. We'll be making this again. Thanks Catalina!

This crust turned out crispy and delicious as promised. This made me the honorary pizza-chef at our house from now on. My only recommendation would be that if you want it really crispy - you should roll it out as thinly as possible. SOOOOOOO Good!

This is an amazing pizza dough recipe. I just throw it all in my bread machine on the dough setting and wait. I love that this is a 'no oil' dough and the results are crispy (you can even hear the crunch!). This is the first time I have managed to convince my husband that homemade pizza beats shop bought and I thank you for that and of course, it is a two thirds of the calories, so healthy too! :)
