Welcome to the board.

You know, every time someone is new and posts a link of some "extraordinary" pizza crust (link included) in their first post, I'm a bit wary.

With that said, there are already numerous recipes for WW pizza, gluten-free pies and the like on here. To me it looks like you are promoting your own site. If that's not the case, please feel free to share your pizza experiences with the rest of us.

Again, welcome to the board and have fun on here. ;)

Even though spammers don't last long around here, I try to give new members the benefit of the doubt. So, I think it is safe to provide the link to the whole wheat recipe that I believe Samurai_pizzacatz had in mind, at http://www.bettaliving.org/Recipes/Wholemeal%20pizza.html.

Whenever a recipe calls out baking powder as leavening for pizza dough I lose interest immediately.

Don, 

How do you react, or would you react, if the recipe calls for both a chemical leavening system and commercial yeast? An example would be a take and bake pizza or a premix pizza dough.

Peter, I think it was the "New to You" Monthly Challenge where I experimented with a number of thin and crispy pizzas in a toaster oven, baking on a steel plate and used a number of on line recipes calling out baking powder and or baking soda as guides in the beginning. Many of those recipes, including this one posted here say to knead until smooth. Huh? ??? Pretty much guarantees no oven lift as in that time your kneading your removing the needed bubbles leading to a dense crust. I found that to be true even using double acting where heat produces bubbling.  Even ones calling for an acid of some sort, creme of tartar, vinegar or lime juice and to mix only until the dough comes together and did exhibit better rise were, at least to me, lacking in texture and flavor needed in a thin and crispy crust. In the spirit of experimentation perhaps I will try baking powder with yogurt and citric acid in this month's challenge. I do believe chemical leavening has it's place in baking just not sure it's in my pizza. ;D
