    This was my first time making pizza dough and I was looking for an easy go to recipe. This turned out great. Aside from me not be able to make a perfect round pie the crust was spot on! Crispy on the bottom chewy in the middle, my kids gobbled it all up. Thank you for this recipe. I will be using this often and can’t wait to make some garlic bread sticks and calzones!! Bake on!!!

    it was awesome! i oiled a cast iron skillet with high sides and made a deep dish pizza. i brushed the edges of the crust with garlic and olive oil about half way through baking. it was reeeeally good.
    So yummy and easy- this is now a staple at my house.

    EXCELLENT!!! Easy to make and turned out fantastic. The only change I made was adding 1/2 Tbs of sugar just because I don't like overly sweet Pizza crust.

    Freaking amazing! Yum yum yum! One thing though, do not bake it on the parchment paper, the bottom will not crisp up.
