This a pretty good crust recipe. It is basic, as the title suggests, so all the "it's bland" comments made me roll my eyes. Unlike other reviewers, I had to use less flour, just about 2 cups. I tested the water with a candy thermometer so that it was perfect for the yeast, mixed the ingredients with my old hand mixer, and added another half cup of flour with my hands. That seemed to be plenty. Then, I let it rest while the oven heated, and plopped it down on my pizza pan, and spread it out with my hands. No need to roll, really. It spread really easily and I had no problem getting the edges a little higher than the rest. I pre-baked as the recipe suggests, added some basic toppings, and finished baking. My aunt loved it. I thought it was a little bready, but nice and crunchy. I will DEFINITELY make this again. If you have problems with it rising, check the temperature of your water. If it's too cold, the yeast won't react. If it's too hot, it will kill the yeast. If it's too bland, add some spices. If it's too sticky, I'm not sure what you've done, because this was one of the least sticky, easy to handle doughs I've ever used. Hope this helps.
