Easy and yummy! I added some garlic and parsley salt as well as a sprinkling of basil to the dough for extra flavor. Definitely my turn-to pizza dough recipe. Thanks for posting!

This was a very easy recipe to prepare. The base turned out nice and crispy but not heavy. Definitely going to be using this for my pizzas from now on. The only thing I think it needs is a little something in the base, like garlic salt, to give it a bit more flavor.

First of all, the pizzas were really good! On one pizza I used traditional tomato pizza sauce, with mozzerella cheese and pepperoni. On the other pizza, I used pesto sauce, feta cheese, and fresh tomatoes. The dough was a lot of fun to watch while rising. This was my first time to cook with yeast, and it was very simple. I think the next time I use this recipe (which I will) I'll make it into rolls as well. My mom thinks that would have a very good flavor. Also: maybe some basil in the dough would leave it with a nice, spring taste.
