Herbed Cheese Pizza

    Haven't tried these toppings, but this is my go-to pizza dough recipe. Easy to make, and I like having the option of weighing the flours. Less chance of measuring errors. It makes 4 12-inch pizzas, and the dough freezes beautifully after the rise. I've made it many times, and it always comes out crusty and tender.

    FABULOUS! Easy & sauce has SO much flavor! Even used Boboli Whole Wheat crust. Added all spices to tomato mixture & I grated the cheese. So easy & delicious!! Can't wait to eat again. Also added some shredded chicken that had leftover but not necessary.

    The dough was easy to make and tastes great. Sauce is amazing. I think this would taste just as good with fresh mozzarella. Also, I love cumin, but it just didn't seem to fit here. Overall, delicious.

    Really liked this, might cut down on the cumin as the other reviewer commented. I took a major shortcut and used pre-made crust. Still delicious!

    This was the first pizza dough I ever made and it was very easy. If you plan on eating the pizza the same day you need several hours to prepare. Otherwise I advise making the dough ahead of time. Everything came out great, the only problem is I think I killed my cheap mixer kneading the dough. The recipe is definitely a keeper.

    I really wanted to like this recipe. The sauce looked like it had potential on paper. However, the cumin way overpowered everything. It was like eating pizza topped with chili. I served the leftover sauce over pasta and it was still not great. I re-made it with half the cumin and still wasn't impressed. I would not make it again.

    This was a huge disappointment ! Allthough the dough was easy to work with, and it did indeed 'rise' exceedingly well, even when cooked, the dough was very 'doughy' and tasted like it was a huge submarine bread and very bland. Also very yeasty' tasting. Spare yourself the disappointment and use a different pizza dough recipe. Sorry, I will never make again.

    I really liked the pizza crust, and the tomato topping was delicious and easy to put together. I could not find kasseri cheese anywhere, so I settled for scarmorza, (though I think I could have just as easily used mozzarella). I'm curious to see how my leftover pizzas reheat in the toaster oven. I'll probably make this again. Next time, I'll likely use the dough hook on my mixer, instead of kneading with my hands - I assume it will be very much the same.
