Made this with my daughter and her friends (all aged 6 and under). We split the dough into 5 small pizzas and it was perfect. Will definitely be making this again

Substituted plain flour for oat flour I made using old fashion oats ground up in the blender to a fine powder, got very nice crust. Pizza toppings used spaghetti meat sauce, tomatoes, black olives, green olives, red onions, mushrooms, and shredded pizza cheese. Baked on 400f for 25 minutes. The pizza was delicious. I ate half of it immediately.

Great! Takes 30 minutes, very easy, and tastes just like the store bought pizza you would buy in Walmart or something!

Not sure what is wrong with this - super dense when done. Almost scone-like. Maybe needed to be rolled out super thin or baked a bit before the toppings put on, but I could barely stomach it.

Super. Makes great small pizzas, bit dense when we made a large. Second time round we cooked the pizzas for an additional 5 mins before adding toppings. Was perfect!

This recipe was well worth the gamble! It gets mixed reviews but go for it. However, you must use it to make thin pizzas! I followed it exactly and rolled out two 10" thin pizzas. It's was great! If you did one big pizza it's be dense enough to use as a weapon! It's not the most delicious base I've ever made but when you're in a pinch it's great!

Went to make pizza dough and realised I'd ran out of yeast so turned to this recipe. Kids lived it and my daughter ate all her crust which never happens! I rolled it pretty thin and just put my homemade pizza sauce and cheese on top. It was lovely, didn't taste too floury to us

I am normally not the person to review things but I had to review this recipe because it really surprised me. First, it was very easy to make and was not time-consuming. Second, the pizza came out almost fluffy and the crust actually had a nice flavour to it. When the pizza came out of the oven, my flatmates were really stunned because they said it looked like a pizza from a pizzeria! i highly recommend this recipe, because it is so simple. You do not need to have yeast on hand or wait for the dough to rise. I will definitely make it again
