Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is the most used recipe in our home, and the centerpiece of "Pizza and a Movie" night. We have gotten pretty creative on the toppings over the years- usually resulting in a "grown-up pizza" with kalamata olives, pesto, occasionally feta cheese, etc... and a "Kids' pizza" with just cheese, or toasted pine nuts and sometimes green olives. After enough years of living in Oklahoma, Kansas, etc... we learned that homemade pizza beats anything we can count on locally.
If you want pretzels instead, make them twisty instead of flat, brush them with egg, and put Kosher salt on them - whatever you can do to make them look like pretzels.

I think the original recipe came from "The Bread Book"
