Not giving any stars yet, as I am still working with this recipe. However, there is no way this is right. I had to add about 3/4 c water to the 1 cup of initial water to make this thing come together. Also looks like it will make two pizzas, not just one. ** Good basic recipe for stromboli or pizza crust. Stromboli takes about 20 minutes at 450. This might also make a good plain loaf of bread as well. I added some dried herbs and spices for extra kick! YUM! :) ** A second attempt revealed that a 1 hr rise followed by an 8 hr rest/rise on the counter gives a truly crunchy crust.
