    I've had the pleasure of trying this pizza on a couple of occasions & have been begging for the recipe ever since. Well, "Miss Lorena" finally passed it on and I thought I'd share it with all of you.....

      My family liked this crust. It certainly is thick. I had to use an extra cup of flour. It was still extremely sticky, but I did not add more. Neither did I let it rise 4 hours. I did let it go 2 hours and when it began to take over the kitchen, I divided it between two 16 inch pizza pans, topped it up and baked it. It took about 40 minutes, but that's my oven. I made my regular sauce, so this review is only for the delightful crust. Thank you for sharing!

      Great recipe! There were just a few problems. One, the dough needed more flour. I just adjusted it to 6 1/2 cups flour, so it wouldn't be overly sticky. And two, it needed a pinch of honey or sugar. I also added some garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and Parmesan cheese to the dough for added affect.
