This is an excellent pizza crust recipe. I have found it is really good when baked on a pizza stone.

This is just a regular old pizza recipe that you can find anywhere. How about using some real flour like Durum Semolina or a high gluten flour. Try experimenting with the flour and the liquid(v-8 makes an interesting dough) to find the one you like best. Read More

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. Read More

So far this produced the thinnest crust pizza, which is what we were looking for. I used this recipe and made two pizzas with it. With the first pizza I prebaked the crust for 10 minutes on the middle rack (on a pizza stone) then added the toppings. It was thin but the middle of the pizza could have been crispier. With the second pizza, I prebaked it for ten minutes on the lowest rack in the oven, added the toppings and returned it to the lowest rack to finish. This made a BIG difference. This was incredibly easy to make. *****Update*****I've made this several times now and have gotten my technique down on how to get it nice and thin and CRISPY! :) I divide the dough in half and use one half per pizza. After spreading it on my stone, I bake it for 10 minutes on the lowest rack at 500 degrees. Then I lower the temp to 450, add the toppings and bake til the cheese is bubbly. When you bite into the crust you can actually hear it crunch! SO so so happy I tried this recipe :) Read More

This is the best crust recipe i've found so far. It was pretty good though it was a little too much like a biscuit. Read More
