    sugarpea's Note:

    This recipe from Nick Stellino makes 2 large, thin pizza crusts or 1 crust and one loaf of bread, etc. It's a great, versatile dough. The same toppings used on a pizza usually work in the bread. Times are for making 2 pizza crusts up to the point of adding toppings.

      I used an oiled perforated pan and the crust was just fabulous. I will definitely make this again, and I bet it's even better if the dough ages a bit in the frig.

      My husband's aunt turned me on to Nick Stellino and every recipe I have tried is absolutely mouth watering. This dough turned out perfect; I even made an extra batch just to have some in the freezer. The only thing different I experimented with was, I substituted two cups of the flour for two cups of wheat flour. It turned out delicious.

      Quick & easy! Prepared as directed, I got enough dough to make 1 each of large, medium, and small stromboli, plus 1 10" focaccia (mixed italian herbs into the dough after 1st rise, and drizzled with olive oil before baking). The focaccia is in the oven now, and it smells AMAZING! Thanks, SugarPea!
