I've been using a similar dough for my pizza's :-) Although I leave out the salt and sugar, and sometimes add some wheat bran for extra fiber, and some oregano and other spices for a spicy pizza dough. It's a great recipe! I'be been checking quite a few of your recipes and I think it's wonderful how you manage to write them down, accompanied by nice photo's. I will definitely try some of them!
