I have never made a pizza from scratch, but will definitely be making it this way from now on. I made a few of the recommended changes ( 1/2 teaspoon extra brown sugar and salt) and it was fabulous, and so easy using my stand mixer. The only issue I had was that I underestimated how much it would rise in the oven and didn't roll it out enough, and it came out a little too thick for my liking (still tasted fabulous though). Those that rated this low stating it didn't rise probably had issues with the yeast, if made correctly (with good yeast and water the correct temp) it rises just fine. Also, you will get better results if you pre bake at least five minutes before adding the toppings and bake at 450 instead of 425. I am a novice when it comes to using a pizza stone and pizza peel, next time instead of two larger pizza I may try three smaller ones with a thinner crust that will be easier to manage. Made it with the Easy pizza sauce III recipe from this site and shredded my own mozzarella cheese, topped the kid's with pepperoni and the adult's with lots of fresh veggies as well....amazing!!!!! My nine yr. old said it was better than take out. Try this recipe, even if you are a novice pizza maker like me, you won't regret it!
