When our children were younger, I made this tasty, from-scratch pizza for their birthday parties. Everyone loved it so much there was never any left over. It has a thick, chewy crust plus hearty toppings.

"I often make this crust. I divide the dough between two crust because it is very thick. But I like being able to have a good whole wheat crust pizza. I also like to make my own pizza sauce which I use another ToH recipe."

"DELICIOUS! Be sure middle of pizza gets baked all the way through (had to bake more than 30 minutes)."
