    Sounds like a great dough. Like it, and the filling, is delicious the way it has so many good things in it.

    Great pizza dough recipe!! Quick and easy to put together. Used quick rise yeast and it was ready in an hour. My only complaint, was that I found it entirely too salty. Next time I will cut the salt in half, maybe more. Overall, great recipe Will use this one again and again.

    First time ever making pizza dough and it turned out wonderfully! This has quickly become a family favorite. I've also used quick rise yeast instead and it takes less than an hour to rise and turned out just as great!

    Had a long time favorite pizza dough recipe but thought I would try Lucinda's and oh boy!! We all loved this one - now our family speciality. Can't believe what a difference the milk made. A big hit for sure!!

    This is the same dough LSQ has featured on Mad Hungry. It is a fantastic dough for thin, Neapolitan-style pizzas.

    I have been making Neapolitan-style pizzas at home all my life, and this dough was a dream to work with! I have never used milk in my dough before, but it really made a tasty crust - crisp yet tender at the same time. This will become my new go-to recipe for pizzas at home. My yield was two pizzas from this dough recipe.

    BeckyinBoston, I would freeze the dough and not just keep it in the refrigerator.
