I called the family to the table to see what I had made. Pepper, my cockatiel, found no humor in this event. You know, he not being a pizza eater and all that. Well, he fixed on me a snake-eyed stare and accused me of not being very considerate. A spoonful of tuna will set things right and thank goodness he has a short memory. I AM happy to say this was much enjoyed by all the others. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

I am trying to overcome my "fear" of the yeastie beasties and I chose to make this recipe because the directions were very clear. Let me tell you, it worked very well for me. My first homemade pizza dough (with no cheating from the bread machine). Very excited with the results. I did add some mushrooms to the toppings and used pizza sauce instead of pasta sauce. The crust bake up fluffy and the middle of the pizza was not soggy at all! Thanks for sharing Sydney Mike!

A good pizza. Used pizza sauce instead of pasta sauce. Added some green peppers, red peppers, mushrooms and fresh tomatoes. I halved the recipe to make one big square pizza. Crust definitely puffs up when cooked, so get it pretty thin prior to cooking. Mine was done baking in 20 minutes. Made for Veg*n Swap.

This is a great pizza recipe! It is not too thick and not too thin. It baked perfectly so that the crust is not soggy and you can pick it up with your hand to eat. After 20 minutes, the cheese was getting a little too brown so I turned it down to 350 for the next 10 minutes. I halved this to make only 1 pizza since it was just my youngest son and I for dinner tonight. He loved the crust and he's very picky! For the sauce, I used "Kittencal's Pizza Sauce". I loved the addition of the romano cheese and used a combination of provolone and mozzerella cheeses. I also had to add some pepperoni for my son even though I could be happy, too, with just a simple cheese and sauce pizza. Thanks for sharing!

This is an excellent pizza. The crust is quite simple and quick (other than time to rise) to make. I used pizza sauce rather than pasta sauce. Made for November Beverage Tag.

This is a very good, basic (and traditional) pizza -- We loved it! I made two pizzas, but made them in 15x10 rectangular pans. I used fresh mozzarella slices instead of shredded, and on one pizza also added some basil from the garden. Magnificent! Thanks, Syd!

Very good and versatle pizza recipe. I made 1.5x the recipe and divided the dough into 6 smaller pizzas. Each member of the family was able to top with their choice of toppings. Mine included Genoa Salami, red & green pepper strips, fresh mozzarella, romano, feta and olives. Kids were Syd's recipe plus Pepperoni. Everyone enjoyed this. The smaller pizzas baked for 20 minutes at the same temp.

This crust was awesome! The Romano cheese was yummy too. I did cheat a little and have my stand mixer do some of the kneading for me :) Great recipe, much better than delivery! Thanks, Chandra
