    This was a great pizza crust! It had a very nice flavor. I halved the dough and made the first half to fit into a large rectanular cookie sheet and the other half I made into rolls for dinner the next day, which made 12 rolls perfectly for the amount of dough. Thanks for sharing. I will be using this more often!

    Very good recipe. I made this in my breadmaker with a half recipe. Worked really well - the dough had a lovely consistency and no problems baking with a thick layer of vegetables on top. Very good for sheaking in garlic for kids that are a bit garlic resistant at the moment.

    Unlike the last reviewer, I like a yeasty crust and the garlic is great. I found it a little "biscuity", but that may be entirely my fault, maybe didn't knead long enough (?). I will try it again.

    I didn't like this one. Too much yeast for our taste.
