Five stars for ease! We've tried lots of pizza crusts - Boboli, Freschetta, a premade crust from an independent store, the Trader Joe's pizza dough that you roll out at home... None is quite right. The Trader Joe's crust was especially frustrating, since it would always start shrinking back when we tried to roll it out. I threw the ingredients for this crust together and had it rolled out in 15 minutes. I did mix the yeast and warm water first and let it sit while I got the rest of the ingredients out. I kneaded just enough to bring the ingredients together, and I was able to roll it out fairly thinly (the way we like it) to fill a cookie sheet with no snap-back problems. I prebaked for 10 minutes at 400, put on toppings, then baked another 15 minutes. It turned out crispy at the edges and chewy in the middle... just the way we like it! My husband is VERY particular about his pizza, and he loved this crust. Thanks for the recipe!
UPDATE: I've made this four times now and it's been just as easy every time. Love it!! I've been wondering if I need the yeast, since I don't allow the dough to rise at all. Also, my daughter (7 months old) loves this pizza, and it makes a great teething biscuit (when prepared without salt) because it doesn't crumble in her mouth. I usually use 1 c whole wheat flour and 2 c all-purpose and top with the sauce from World's Best Lasagna (on this site).
