Hey guys - how would you summarize the usual effect of honey in a dough's flavor and texture?

It adds a distinctly flavored sweetness I don't particularly care for in pizza (bread is a different story). Maybe I just don't know how to balance it. That being said, some folks definitely like it.
Pizza is not bread.

Ben,

This thread might be a good starting point to learn more about the use of honey in a dough: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,16107.msg157655.html#msg157655

If you do a search in the Dough Ingredients board, you will find other posts on the subject.

Ben,

I forgot to mention in my last post is that honey seems to work well when making a short-term dough that can be made and used in a few hours. You can see an example of such use in Reply 52 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,6758.msg66312/topicseen.html#msg66312.
