Just tried this with kids but mixed a bit of dry basil in the dough to give it a bit of flavour...tastes really good

0 stars! Sorry but this is horrible I am really baffled by the good reviews. Just tasted like flour and didn't crisp up after been in the oven for 35 mins...and I made sure the bases were thin. I would advise ensuring you have yeast in the cupboard as I will from now on!

Really easy method and great if you don't have yeast! Always turns out lovely.

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!
