Personal Notes:
This is really great pizza if you use the pizza sauce I entered under soups & sauces. This recipe is great fun for the kids ( rainy day or boredom ) The bowl I use is huge and I use a big Glass bowl for the rising of the dough. While I am making the dough I turn on my oven on 200 & set the glass bowl on the burner the releases the heat. Don't let it get to hot, just warm enough to speed up the rising propose. Because I use a huge bowl to mixing all the ingredients I can knead the dough right in the bowl and it saves on a mess. I also use the press-n-seal to cover the bowl. You don't want any air getting to the dough, it will dry it out. This dough can be used for bread stick dinner rolls cinnamon sticks or calzones
