I love this recipe! I did use a few suggestions that others had mentioned such as I added 1/2 tsp. Oregano, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp. onion powder to the OIL and mixed the spices into the oil until well blended then add to the yeast and sugar BEFORE adding the flour. I do this because before adding the flour I put my bowl with the yeast, sugar, salt and oil mix in the microwave and warm it for approx. 15 to 20 seconds in order to help the process of my crust to rise. I also have my oven on warming to temp while making my dough. I'm telling you this because you can use this to also help get your dough to rise. I after I get my dough mixed to a nice pliable ball will leave it in the bowl and set the bowl on a cookie sheet on top of the oven for about 1/2 hour to rise. My dough ball will usually rise to double the size before I start using for crust. Another note I forgot to tell you is that the Oregano, Garlic powder and such are optional it just adds a nicer flavor to the crust. I used this same recipe to make breadsticks and they turned out fantastic. Just roll out dough like pizza, add butter or margarine with garlic powder over the top of dough and add your favorite cheese ( I used an Italian blend) and bake until cheese is nice and bubbly and starting to turn a light brown on top. Everyone at my house loves the flavor of this crust! This is a easy and no fail recipe. I will be giving this a 5 star rating.
