    This recipe, if followed correctly, produces one large bowl of floury slop. Either the water or the flour quantities listed here are completely wrong. Try any other pizza base recipe out there before this one.  -  24 Oct 2015


    Ingredients totally wrong leaves a bowl full of slop. The instructions put the dough onto a generously floured baking tray, probably needs something before - like roll out the dough?  -  26 Oct 2017


    Made this was nice and simple kids both helped make it. Need to keep adding flour dough can get bit sticky.  -  16 Apr 2016
