I used my 9" round cake pan for this. Instead of pepperoni I used ham and pineapple. I found that 1 1/2 cups of cheese was plenty. I sprinkled Italian seasoning over the cheese before baking. The directions were perfect starting with a cold oven and then baking exactly 30 minutes. Other than playing around with the toppings the only change I plan to make next time (this weekend!!!) is to coat the dough all over VERY well with olive oil and sprinkle some cornmeal in the bottom of my pan. Thanks for the recipe I will use it often for a quick lunch or weekend meal! Read More

This was really good! My husband and kids loved it. I did make a couple of changes. I doubled the recipe to make 2 because I didn't know if one would be enough for the four of us. We ended up with 1/2 of one left over which my husband took for lunch the next day. I only used 1 cup of reduced fat cheese on each one and I used turkey pepperoni to cut back on some fat. I added 1/2 lb of cooked sausage to each one. This would be good with any of your favorite pizza toppings. Next time I'm going to add ham and banana peppers. The kids are wanting me to fix this again next week! Yummy! Read More

Easy attractive and tasty. Not restaurant quality but it's still pretty good. I did not have the RapidRise yeast but did have Fleischmann's BreadMachine Yeast which says on the label it's "also ideal for all RapidRise Recipes". Since this was a Fleichmann's recipe I took their own advice. I guess it worked. I didn't have a deep-dish pie plate so I chose to use a 10" springform pan and it worked beautifully. Since you can take the sides off it made cutting it easier. Well (olive) oiled hands made spreading the dough into the well oiled pan a breeze. I chose to mix my dough in a separate bowl. I did find that the crust was a little doughy while the cheese was perfectly brown next time I'll bake it on the lower middle rack. Read More

I've made a lot of homemade pizza since my son is such a fanatic. The only drawback is the hour I have to wait for the dough to be ready. This recipe was pretty good and VERY fast! I do suggest adding some seasonings to the dough. It's very plain. Usually I add some garlic bread seasonings (from Costco) to my regular recipe. I added a tablespoon or two when I doubled this recipe and it still tasted bland. I'll add several more next time or maybe some granulated garlic since it's pretty strong and some basil and oregano. Otherwise, the dough worked out very well. I do suggest using olive oil to oil the pans really well so the crust doesn't stick. I did this and it worked like a charm! I also followed the suggestion of adding some cornmeal to each pan. I topped the pizzas with hamburger, onions, mushrooms and ham and with just plain cheese and pepperoni. Both were great. For the speed of this recipe, I highly recommend it. Read More

My family and I love this recipe. It's quick and easy. I use 1/2 whole wheat flour 1/2 white flour for the dough and I don't add the cheese until about 1/2 way through baking. Didn't have mozzarella the first time I made this so I used provolone slices and that was really good! Thanks! Read More

My husband and son love this. I will double the recipe next time so they aren't fighting over it. I like it because it's so quick and easy. My only problem was that the "crust" stuck very badly to the bottom of the casserole dish even after I used the spray grease beforehand on the pan. Also I used 1 tsp of yeast from a jar. The "2 envelopes" looked like a mistake to me. Read More
