    Pampered Linny's Note:

    So easy and versatile. Not to mention great tasting. I usually make this into one large pizza, one medium deep dish or two small pizzas.

      My husband and I wanted to venture out and make our own pizza dough, after coming across this recipe we decided to try it and loved it! We put 1 tablespoon of Italian herbs in the dough before letting it rest and it added such a wonderful flavor to it. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe, it has won a place in my recipe box that's for sure! :D

      Very easy and tasty. I did the Italian seasoning variation. Used it to make "Portabella and Tomato Pizza".
