made this recipe twice now over the last couple of weeks and me and my family absolutely love it! however would definitely recommend baking the base on its own for about 5 mins before topping

Just tried this recipe as no yeast anywhere just now - very impressed and is now our new pizza dough recipe! I used plain flour and 3 tsp of baking powder, rolled the dough out as thin as possible and pre cooked the dough for 5 mins before adding toppings!

Not to sure about it, if it was me or ingredients or the recipe, but it was horrible. Dough was hard, no flexible at all and and it tasted salty.

Fantastic recipe, perfectly crisp pizzas- I reduced flour to 250g for 2 thin crust pizzas. Pre-heat your oven to max and they only take 10minutes to cook!

Cooked this during the COVID 19 Lock Down for my wife as she loves a Domino however the don’t deliver as far out as we live from town. Anyway all went good pre cook the base for up to 5 minutes then cook with toppings of your choice for a further 10. Better and obviously cheaper than Dominos and so quick!

Really easy pizza dough recipe. We cooked this on a proper pizza tray, on its own for 5 min and then added the toppings and did for a another 15min. Turned out great.

The dough was vile to be honest. Wife and 4 year old kid couldn't stomach it. Used plain flour. Like many on here I had to scrape the toppings off to try and eat something. Had to add more watter as flour was not absorbing. Dough Tastes like a weird sour cake or scone or something. Tried to Google why this is but can't find any info apart from ones that involve yeast. Don't waste your time.

Hi! I've noticed that a lot of people are saying how dense this is. Do you think you could use self raising flour instead of plain flour? Or should I use part SR Flour and part plain flour? Would this make it less dense and more like traditional pizza? Or would it just ruin it.
