    I saw your pictures on the KnoxNews website and wanted to comment on how yummy that pizza looks. I just recently have learned how to make bread, including pizza dough. Making pizza at home is cheap, easy, and so much healthier that I'll probably never order delivery again. Plus, you and I share the technique of using parchment paper to roll out the dough.

    Thanks Jennifer! We always have some dough in the fridge so we can make one on the fly if we need to.

    I too am a huge fan of the simple, non-traditional homemade pizza. While mine generally involve some meat and fresh herbs, you can't go wrong with most any interpretation. Also as another alternative to baking, I might suggest giving the grill a try, if you haven't already. I prefer using the charcoal grill with a few chunks of hardwood soaked in water to give the crust a slightly charred and smoky flavor.

    Chris - we love grilling pizza and we do it all the time if we're cooking out. It's usually easier for us to cook it in the oven so that's our usual method but I plan to do a tutorial for grilled pizza for people who haven't tried it yet.

    THAT was a very funny story. I tend to be a thick crust gal, but it might be because when thick crust is mediocre it is edible but when thin crust is bad it is BAD. Whereas when I have dad really good thin crust pizza I discovered I did enjoy it. The bubbles on yours look quite tasty.

    Laura - I hate wimpy thin crust pizza. It has to be crisp and almost shatter when you bite into it. That's why I love this recipe. You should try the skillet bread - for some reason I think you'd love it. It's especially good if you press spices into it before putting it in the pan. I love it with chernushka/nigella seeds in it.

    Kristina! I used your crust tonight, yum! Thanks for sharing :)

    looks yummy! i am going to give it a try. thank you for sharing.

    Thanks! Let me know how it turns out!
