    Hi i want to make this recipe today and I was wondering when it says to cook for 25 minutes does that also mean with the toppings or before adding the topping? Thank you  -  16 Dec 2011


    Something else. Good recipe, but like other reviewers, it's missing directions. Here's my changes: 300ml warm water, 1 sachet yeast, 1 tblsp sugar, 1 tsp thyme, 3 tblsp olive oil, 375g+ flour, 1 tsp salt. Mix water, yeast, sugar & oil in mixer bowl. Then add flour & salt. Mix-knead for 10-12 minutes, sprinkling with flour to keep from sticking to bowl. Dough should be elastic & smooth. Place dough in oiled bowl, cover dough with oil, cover & let stand 1 hr at room temp. Then divide dough 2 equal parts roll into balls, cover with damp towel & let stand another 10 mins. Use immediately. Don't forget to poke holes into dough with fork once rolled onto tin to let steam escape while baking.  -  14 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I needed slightly more flour for the final mixing, otherwise it was very wet and sticky.  -  10 Jan 2009
