"Finally a pizza dough recipe that tastes great. I'll be using this one EVERY time I make pizza.. It was hard to find a good bread machine recipe for pizza dough. Thanks."
"This recipe did not give me the traditional pizza dough taste. I feel it needed more yeast and about 1/2 teaspoon more salt. However, it was very easy to work with and produced a crunchy crust. I have been using the Sicilian Pizza Dough recipe by Nick Stellino for years and still prefer that one."
"This was a great recipe! I added some dried Italian seasoning to the mix and it was a good thing to do. Also, it was SOooo much nicer to work the dough ball as wet with olive oil instead of the traditional dry with a flour dusting. Furthermore, the pizza crust cooked up with a slight browning/crusting effect on the bottom because of the olive oil. I will have to agree with another reviewer, however, that it made quite a large and/or thick crust upon which to build the pizza. Plenty of dough with this recipe. The dough ball is easily big enough to halve and make 2 pizzas, which is my plan for tonight! Thank you for this great recipe! Pete"
"this was a very good recipe when i put it on the pizza pan it looked like it would be just right but ended up rising to about 2- 2 1/2 inches thick but i cooked it that way any ways and it was very good but next time i will make 2 pizzas out of it. i used the seasonings in the dough and i prebaked it for about 9 mins then topped it and cooked it about another 12to 15 mins and it turned out perfect other then being thick but we liked it that way thanks for this great recipe"
"I'm not sure this is my favorite pizza dough, but it's pretty good. It's a substantial dough and full of flavor. I did pre-bake mine, but still had some difficulty baking the crust all the way through without burning the surface."
"This is the best pizza dough ever. "AWESOME" for sure. I have used it several times now and it's perfect every time. I follow the recipe exactly and opt to use the additional seasoning, which I add to the flour mixture right before beginning the pizza dough cycle. McCormick Classic Pizza Seasoning works for me. I've tried it with and without, and my 21-year-old son prefers it with. I prebake dough 7 minutes before adding sauce and toppings. Dough is thick, but always light & crispy. THANKS HDMac. "
"WOW! this recipe really fits its name!! I have never made homemade pizza dough before and when I came across this recipe and seen the dough was made in the bread machine, I just had to give it a try. I am sooooo happy that I did too. It was totally AWESOME! I fellowed the recipe as it was written and I didn't have not one bit of a problem. I warmed the water in the microwave first and than added it to the bread pan than added my oil and salt than the flour,cheese, cornmeal and yeast. I ran the dough cycle and when finished I punched it down let it set alittle longer than 5 minutes. Than took out and placed in a cast iron skillet and added my toppings. The crust was thick but so goooood! I will be making this recipe from now on. It beats any dough I have made before. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe. "
"This pizza dough deserves the "Awesome" in it's name. I followed the recipe exactly as written as well as taking barbaciou's suggestion to prebake the crust for about 10 minutes before adding the toppings. The results were a beautifully golden brown pizza with the toppings done and the dough cooked all the way through. Thank you, HDMac."
"I have tried many pizza crust recipes on zaar and had good results but this by far is the BEST I have ever tried. I was surprised as it was so easy and few ingredients the results were a crisp flavorful crust. Must be the addition of the corn meal. All I know is my family said this is it! Finally my search is over. Thanks sooooo much!"
"FINALLY! My previous attempts at making pizza were OK, but never inspired. After trying this basic recipe, I finally believe I can make delicious pizza at home. This dough makes wonderful thin and crispy pizza, the cornmeal adding just the right texture. I've tested many pizza doughs and this is the one I will definitely repeat!"
"A very good and easy pizza crust. I prebaked the crust about 10 minutes before adding the toppings since I usually have a problem getting the crust cooked before the topping burns."
"Very easy to make if you have a bread machine. I added fresh roasted garlic, fresh rosemary from the garden, (it survived the snow!) and fennel to the machine. The house smelled wonderful! I am not a fan of American style pizza laden with a pound of this and that, so for my homemade version I added a bit of fresh romano and Greek mizithra as a topping along with some Greek oregano and olives. Thank you! CG"
