This pizza crust is really yeasty and fluffy. There's really no other flavor in the crust besides yeast. The texture is not bad, but the yeast dominates all other impressions. Like the 365 crust, this needs more flavor.

Z's Review: * *
Getting four pizza crusts mixed and out of the oven around the same time for this taste test was no easy task! So I have lots of comments about the process of making these pizzas! This mix was a little bit time intensive because it required letting the yeast sit in warm water for 10 minutes before mixing it into the dough and then letting the dough rise for 30 minutes before topping and baking. So with the time it takes to mix the ingredients and 15-20 minutes for baking, this pizza takes at least an hour to make. We also had to take the suggestion on the box and add some GF flour while we were mixing the dough because it was really sticky. However, we didn't want to mess up the recipe and the flour didn't actually seem to help too much with the stickiness, so we didn't add much. (SIDE NOTE: One useful tip for dealing with really sticky dough - wet your hands or your rolling pin before touching the dough!) It's important to note that following the instructions on the box and using all the mix yields two pizza crusts.

As far as the final product goes, this crust was really soft and doughy and you could really taste the yeast. It was too yeasty for me. But it was so light and fluffy that I think this mix might make better bread or breadsticks than pizza dough.
