This dough is a cinch -- give it time to rise and a couple of kneads and it's done! You can store it in an oiled bowl, covered with plastic, in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.

    Terrible. Had it for a birthday party and it was ruined. Do not recommend using this at all. Followed instructions and it was WAYYY TO THICK, and it was all burnt at bottom. So much for a homemade pizza birthday party... had to order pizza, because it was too burnt and nasty

    We have made this recipe 3 or 4 times and it is easy and delicious! We make the dough thin and then cook it on a cast iron skillet then broil it to finish the pizza off :)

    In the video she says two teas[filtered]s of sugar, but the recipe says two tables[filtered]s. Which is correct? I made this recipe by watching the video, and it turned out more like ciabatta dough, very very sticky.

      I am making this dough recipe for the first time. It's in the kitchen rising as I type this. I'm just posting to find out if Martha Stewart .com comments section really filters out the word "[filtered]" from "tablespoon"

      It turns out sticky even if you follow the recipe version. Also, Tablesp00n version tastes great. P.S. isn't it hillarious how teaspoon is filtered? cracks me up every time.

    I wear a pizza box as a hat, and I throw on some paper as my shoes I brush my teeth with a rock, that rock is always in the shape of a block.
