Have been feeling tired and not wanting to cook; then I found this recipe. Before DH could say, "Let's go out and eat" this crust was in the oven. This was excellent! The only change was using mozzarella in place of the ricotta. I was able to roll this (in the pan) to get a fairly thin crust. Thank you for posting! P.S. I would say that this serves 2-3 people.
