uh oh...now my family won't eat another packaged pizza crust ever again. This is a great, quick, easy recipe. I'd never made my own pizza crust but this was sooo easy. I put it into the oven at 250 degrees and let it rise a bit. We like our pizza more like a casserole and it was perfect in a 9x11 pan and was the equivilant of what I'd been gettin out of 2 packages of bought. Lookin at the recipe, I think I might have forgotten the oil, but I always put a drizzling of olive oil on my crust before I top it and even though I forgot the oil, it still turned out great. I sprinkled it with a little garlic salt, and some italian seasoning too. THANKS A BUNCH!!!

I was terrified this recipe was not going to come through for me considering i only made pizza once before and that was in high school and i had lost the recipe to that one. But this recipe came through for me and was an amazing hit, my mother-in-law's fiancee even liked it and he is not a pizza lover at all. My whole family raved about how much they loved it. I didn't need to add anything to the dough it was perfect even withstood the mountain of toppings that i toppled on it. i was surely be using this recipe for years to come! GREAT RECIPE!

This is a great, basic, quick pizza crust. I added some garlic powder, about half whole wheat flour and about 1 tbsp of sugar to the dough. The dough was very easy to work with and roll. It created a soft yet somewhat chewy crust.

This is a great quick and easy recipe. I put everything in my mixer and I did knead it for a few minutes. I also let it rest a bit longer than 15 minutes while I prepared other things. I think salt is really important please use salt if you can. I also like to use honey or granulated sugar to bloom the yeast and for a bit of sweetness in the crust. I also think it tasted maybe a bit too yeasty when it was done so I might be using half the yeast next time, but that will cause less rising in the 15 mins in the recipe so we'll see. This crust recipe is a great medium for adding some flavor like italian seasoning, roasted garlic chunks, cheese, etc. I am keeping this recipe for sure to use when I need something quick. I also think this would work well with calzones. I used a baking stone at 500 degrees and stretched the dough about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and this was too thick for 500 degrees because my cheese was browning before the crust. I'm going thinner next time and I think it will work out nicely. If you want a thicker crust I think this recipe is also great for that because my thicker pizza tasted great even though it wasn't what I was looking for. Just keep your temp lower for thicker pizza so you don't burn your toppings before the crust gets done.

So easy! I got a stand mixer as a wedding gift and I used it to great effect for this recipe. We used to buy the premade dough from the grocery store, which was too expensive for what it was. I whipped this up so fast it was crazy! Took Milking Mom's advice and baked at 450 for about four minutes. Piled on our favorite toppings (no sauce... olive oil, garlic and herbs instead) and baked for another 8-ish minutes. Yum! Plus, we didn't have to tip a delivery guy.

I was disappointed in this recipe. The dough was hard/tough to roll it out. And there was no salt in the recipe, which made a difference. After baking the pizza I found it dry and hard.

This is a good recipe for when you're in a rush, as good pizza doughs usually take a bit longer..I had run out of white flour (we'd just come back from vacation)so I had to use all whole wheat and added extra yeast. The dough was decent, although it most definitely needed salt!! This is a good recipe to keep handy if you are in a hurry!

I followed the directions exactly.<br/><br/>This crust was quite disappointing considering all the great reviews. I have made many a great pizza dough the more time-consuming, traditional, way and I should have known better that a "quick" recipe wouldn't be satisfactory. This lacked any real texture and totally lacked flavor. Absolutely tasteless and a waste of my time.
