Loved this recipe. The 12 oz. portion was enough to make one large pizza for us, so I would not use that recipe for 2 pizzas. I added some oregano and basil to the dough to give it a little more flavor and it was great. Next time I'm going to add a little ground flax seed and some corn meal to give it some extra texture and nutty crunch. Great, easy recipe.

No rise time, makes thin and/or thick crust
Great Crust for fast and delicious pizza making

So in my home we make this crust on a multi night basis. No food processor. We just add the ingredients together and knead it for a minute to get a nice consistency and then we put it in the microwave with some steaming hot water and a paper towel over it. We also usually incorporate flax seed into the dough to beef up the crunchiness. If you are looking for something tasty, healthy, and fast for a week night treat at home, this crust is perfect.

Quick, easy, delicious, light, crunchy, delicious, holds together well,
Easy to make and delicious!

Made thin crust pizza out of the dough, was crispy but fluffy and just was really simple to make. Will be using this recipe for making pizza crust in the future!
