If I actually made homemade whole grain pizza dough, I would consider before 1 year but since that isn't going to happen and we just order it in, I said 1 year or later. I just try to keep unknown foods out of my baby's diet until after a year.

* I know there isn't anything "magical" about the year mark but it is just something I feel more comfortable with.

Probably around 7-8 months here? Whenever we first had pizza after he started solids. It wouldn't really alarm me to see a younger baby eating one, either - they're good for chewing/gumming.

If she wants to knaw on a pizza crust I don't think it'll hurt her every once in a while. She's 9 months old.

We delay solids until 6 mos. (or do our best to!) but my second son literally climbed onto the table (from his high chair) and grabbed a big handful of chili and spaghetti and started chowing down on it at 5 months. If I hadn't been so shocked that I grabbed it away and ran to wash it off his hands, I'd have taken a picture. It was very funny once I realized it wasn't actually a big deal. He had a 3 yr. old brother and was crawling well at 5 mos., so he probably got more than that. I wouldn't be surprised if he had PBJ crusts before 6 mos., but what you don't know can't hurt you, right?
I'm on baby #3 now and would probably let her try solids if she wanted to at 5 mos. if I didn't already know she has food allergies.

My DD has gummed pizza crusts from our local pizzaria. It was great and kept her occupied for he entire meal. She might have ingested all of about 1 tbsp of the actual crust. The rest was in the highchair.

My eight month old has had them since we introduced wheat around 7 months. With my first baby, I was very strict about introducing one thing at a time and making sure I knew all the ingredients of everything, but this time my willpower has failed. He started grabbing for food at 3 months, and I made him wait until 6 months, poor baby, so I think I used up all my resistance.

Pizza crusts and frozen bagels, too from about 6 mos onwards. She loves them. No allergies here.

5-6 months probably. No history of food sensativities so when they grab it and eat, they get to keep it. My DD (4 mo at the time) pried open a Tupperware and ate a pb&j before I even knew what was happening. After that, not much stopped her!

I would allow playing / gnawing on it early but I would severely limit commercial or pre-prepared crusts because of salt. Babies kidneys aren't able to process the amount of salt that an adult can and pizza crusts can have a LOT of salt.
