It's hard making a copy cat recipe because you want the taste to be exactly the same. It did taste good, but it was not the same as the restaurants. This recipe had a cakey almost crumby interior while the real one has more of a stretchy interior. The recipe was easy to prepare, but I will make it again and free form the dough out on a stone and see if that makes a difference.
