Reviews for Thin Crust Pizza Dough
"very good ! used a dough hook on KA instead"
"Very good. To fit my 14 inch pizza stone I divided the dough into three parts and it worked very well."
"This makes a thin crust for a round pan. My kitchen aid handled this with ease."
"Fast, simple, and delicious! I used regular yeast rather than the quick-rise yeast and didn't have any problems. It rolled out easily and baked to the perfect crispness. I think this will replace my old crust recipe!"
"My husband and I thought that this recipe was fantastic! I used unbleached all-purpose flour instead of the bread flour/whole wheat flour combination and pulsed in 1 Tbl. olive oil as some of the reviews suggested. Although I liked the convenience of making the dough in my food processor, my cheap little model had a hard time with that quantity, so I will be using my Kitchen Aid and dough hook the next time around. I like the fact that I have dough in the freezer to use in the near future and this will definitely be my new go-to pizza crust recipe!"
"My husband and I have pizza at least once a week. This is now my go-to homemade pizza crust. I just have to find the perfect sauce for this."
"Top-notch!! Was so pleased to find this recipe, have only made pizza dough once before and it was too thick.... much prefer thin crust. I added 1Tbsp olive oil as other reviewers suggested and it was perfect. Next time though, I will use all white flour instead of the whole wheat. (Hubby didn't really love it!)"
"Really good and easy to work with, I used the yeast for pizzas (Fleischmans) made 2 small pizzas from one dough ball. My son who in the past has worked for a pizzeria was given a frozen ball to try. We'll see how that goes, I don't know if it could be tossed, It is pretty fragile as it thins out though I was still able to lift it onto a vented pizza pan. I did add Parmesan, oregano and garlic powder."
"Great! I put the ingredients in my bread maker, let it mix it up for five minutes or so (kneading) then divided the dough, freezing 3 more portions. Formed on a silicon sheet placed on a cookie pan then baked for 6 minutes or so then put on the ingredients for a "Hawaiian" pizza. Delish! Am finishing up the last piece as I type. Used whole pineapple slices rather then crushed. Hubby said 'it was the best'. =)All gone now..... rats! =^("
