Pretty danged good, by golly. I used this recipe for just the dough which turned out just about right for my own unconventional pizza toppings. Unconventional means that instead of tomato-based ingredients I used pesto and added 80 grams worth of very salty anchovies (too salty for most tastes) and pepperoni. Then I sprinkled a bit extra parmasean cheese and that was that. They're still licking their fingers. hee hee.
