One of the best pizza doughs I've used!


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In medium bowl, dissolve yeast in water and let sit until foamy. Add flour; mix until well combined. Stir in salt. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place 45 minutes.
  3. Lightly coat 12 inch pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Scrape dough out of bowl and onto prepared pan. With floured hands, press dough into circles to edges of pan.
  4. Bake 15 minutes or until edges are brown and crisp. Top as desired.

Really great! I chose this for the same reason as soda girl--simple ingredients and lack of oil. I added a tsp of honey when proofing the yeast and brushed on a bit of olive oil before baking. I was really surprized and thrilled with the results. It had a nice flavor, good consistency, and tasted great as a base for my spinach pizza. This is my first try at whole wheat crust, and I'm sticking with this one. I'm someone who loves the hearty texture and strong flavor of whole grains, so I appreciated that the flavor of the crust was evident even after I added toppings. Thanks for the great recipe.

There were a few different recipes to choose from, but I chose this one for its lack of oil and other added ingredients. So I was delightfully surprised. However, I did add a couple of things, I sprinkled a small amount of parmesean cheese and oregano on the bottom of the pan before putting down the crust. Also, after baking it initially I did an egg white wash around the outer crust to give if a nice color and crunch. It turned out great. Thanks for the healthy recipe.

This is such an easy pizza crust to make! No more premade dough for my family! I also brushed it with olive oil before baking, then baked for about 10 minutes before putting on topppings. Thanks for sharing!
