We're a pizza family. We love almost any kind. We also love sandwiches so I figured I blend the two and see what happened. YES! This turned out to be a big winner! It made a nice thick pizza with all kinds of flavors going on! Going in the rotation, for sure!!! If you're not into making your own pizza dough, you can certainly use your favorite store bought dough. But this recipe for pizza dough isn't difficult at all and gives this pizza a nice bready consistency. You should try it!!
