    Cooking in Minnesota's Note:

    The cornmeal and olive oil land this crust in the neighborhood of Chicago style crust. If you've found many of the standard recipes too bready and you'd like something with more texture and crunch, this may be the crust for you. It's the result of a great deal of trial and error, cooked on a pizza stone at 470 F.

      This was wonderful!! It rolled out so easily and was so great tasting. I made half with pizza sauce and the other half with just olive oil then topped it off with cheese and mushrooms. Yummy!! 5 stars for sure!!
