Really good quick and easy solution for making pizza bases. Made two smallish pizzas which came out great, will be using this recipe again :)

After reading the reviews was very sceptical but we used this to make 4 (very good sized) bases and topped with each of the kids favourite toppings and I have to say was very impressed. It was a tasty and easy to make base. I understand if I'd have used the mixture to make one base I may be writing a different review but as we used it for a thin base it was delicious 5*

I tweaked this receipe just a little! Instead of 2 1/2 cups of flour, I added 3 cups. Instead of 2 1/3 tsp of baking powder, I added 1 tsp of baking soda. I added 1 tsp of salt, 1 tbsp of oil, 1 cup of water... and I added a bit of parsley for taste! Put that bad boy in their for 10 minutes, and it was pretty good!

I just wanted to stick up for this excellent pizza base. I am lactose intolerant and I can make this dough up in advance so we can all enjoy it. I roll it out and put pizza sauce on. Then do lactose free stuff on mine and normal on the other. Easy to make and always delicious.

Tried this as I fancied pizza. I was pleasantly surprised with it after reading the other comments. If rolled really thin it will be great. I rolled it thin but as the baking powder made it rise it came out thicker than wanted. I halved the recipe and it made a nice sized pizza. Will use again x

I should have read the comments on this... it is quite bad. It's way too dense, and just tastes like flour. Perhaps if you did a half/quarter size of the recipe (depending on how big of a pizza you want, I only used half this dough) and rolled it really really thin it would be edible but I wouldn't waste your time trying

One of the best no yeast pizza doughs I have used. I like the short prep time and by using a pizza stone to cook it on, the crust comes out golden brown and crisp. I will definitely use it again.

I just made this dough, and it was SO bad I felt the need to make an account just to comment here and say how bad it was. I consider myself to be a fairly competent cook, and when I say the base was inedible, I mean it. Literally awful. The only thing that made it delicious was the chorizo amd mushrooms I used for toppings- which I scraped off and ate with chips instead.
