  1. Nice twist on a pizza--I usually have just about all the ingredients on hand, including the crust. There's no excuse for me running to the store to get one now. ;)

    I really want to try baking my own pizza. What's your crust consistency when you bake it in a sheet pan, Heather? Slightly crispy, mostly chewy? I'm just guessing here.
