Sugar in Pizza Crust Substitute?
 
A lot of recipes I am finding call for 1tsp-tbsp of either white or brown sugar. Can I use agave nectar or honey as a sub? Anything else? We are sugar free.

I would just leave it out. I mean a tsp shouldn't make all that much difference. I use the whole wheat recipe from the book "Healthy bread in 5 minutes a day" and there is no sugar at all. It makes great pizza crust!

I googled it, yes the sugar is to feed the yeast. You can use honey in its place

I use honey instead of sugar in my breads so yes, I would definitely do that!

Thank you! FWIW, I will be using THIS recipe because you don't have to let it rise and it says it freezes well. When I get around to making it, I will post how it turned out.

I have used honey but also have pizza crust recipes that don't have any sweetners in them.

Yup, sugar is just to feed the yeast. This recipe actually has 'or honey' next to the sugar :D It's what I use and DH always :drif: when I tell him I'm making pizza :giggle:

That's pretty much the same recipe I use for pizza dough.... You don't have to let it rise, but it comes out 100 times better if you do. I usually let it rise for 20 minutes.

Also, I usually add some dried herbs to the dough, comes out really good.
