"I have two favourite pizza dough recipes and this is one of them. The reason I like this one, is because you can change up the herbs as you like. For example you can use 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp thyme and 1/2 tsp cilantro for an Italian style crust. Or, you can use 1 tsp rosemary and 1/2 tsp parsley for Greek style crust and so on. The list is endless be creative and have fun with this crust. I have always used dry herbs for this pizza dough, so I don’t know how fresh herbs would work. This makes enough for 2, regular crust medium pizzas. Please keep in mind that flour types are different from one country to another so start off with a bit of flour and add more as needed."

Great dough recipe. Easy to make and easy to work with. I used dried Italian Herb mix. Topped with pesto, salami, mushrooms and cheese. Yum!

I decided to use Italian seasoning and extra basil in mine and it came out so delicious. I sat back and wondered why I didn't think of doing that before. This is so versatile that I will use it a lot. Thank you!
