Made this one for my Grandma's and boyfriend's birthday. They both loved it and you will too. The crust stays soft on the inside and gets crusty on the outside. Break out the pizza stone for this one and be hungry :)

I made this for the "low fatters" at my memorial day pizza party, and everyone loved it. No one guessed it was low fat, so it made to "low fatters" feel great about the party. Thanks!
