    This was one of the worst pizzas I've ever had the displeasure of eating, it was overly oily and tasted and smelt like crap. May have been easy to make but turned out terrible, needs alot of editing before this would taste half decent. If you like itlian styled food then it might be for you but I wouldn't reccomend it.  -  11 Apr 2013


    This recipe was very good,I added Italien seasoning to the toppings.I also tried doubling this recipe and made a few smaller pizza's to freeze for the kids,it worked great.  -  04 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great simple pizza crust recipe. I make mine in a mixer with a bread hook, but be careful not to over mix and the crust will be tough. I didn't prebake mine any and it came out perfect.  -  10 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
