Good, simple crust. It didn't rise very much though, and I had a problem with some of the crust being a bit too thin because I didn't have quite enough for two 12-inch pizzas. Next time I may make 150% of the dough, just to be sure there's plenty for a nice, full crust :) ETA: I made this again tonight, and this time let the crust rest in a warm oven for about half of the rising time, and it rose much better than before! Making the recipe as-is, there was plenty for the two pizzas this time!
