From a Gold Medal Flour bag in the early 1970's -- makes 2 crusts -- if your children won't eat onions, do as I did when my daughter was little and blend the tomato sauce and onion in the blender! If Jennifer couldn't see the onion pieces, she ate it! Can be frozen and baked at a later time -- For crispy pepperoni, put it on top of the cheese!
