    Something else. disolve the yeast in a small amount of the water. mix the rest together add yeast mix, then add water in small amounts until firm and not wet. If it goes too sticky add a small amount of flour.  -  04 Jun 2011


    Very good dough, although I would say serves 2-4 or makes 2 medium pizza's.  -  04 Jun 2011


    "Serves 12"?? It might make a 12inch pizza, but I'd say it serves 4.  -  15 Apr 2011
