      I made this recipe for the photoswap. I had a bit of trouble the first time with the amount of dough only making 2 pizzas. In my second attempt. I halfed the recipe and made it in my bread machine. I made 1 deep dish pizza and spread the remaining dough into a small cookie sheet to make a really thin crust for DH and the kids who don't really like the crust anyway. I thought that it did bake up a bit much compared to the photograph that you had of what a Chicago style crust should look like, but it still tasted good. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)
