I loved this recipe. The crust was not dried out and had a slight crunch. I thought that the dough was a bit moist even after the rise stage. I floured my hands and worked it into a round pizza pan. I had enough dough to make two pizzas. I rolled the other dough. I will be making this again and again. We eat a lot of pizza. I always get request to make pizza. - 07 Jun 2014
