"This crust is awesome! My husband doesn't care for pizza but he says this is the best pizza he's ever had. I make my own pizza sauce from a recipe called Exquisite Pizza Sauce on Since there are only 3 of us, I freeze half the dough for later."

"move over, Digorno... there is a new pizza in this house! Learning to use my bread maker for more than just bread and this is fast becoming a favorite! The crust is very tasty and the fact that it makes 2 makes me a happy momma. The kids get their own & the parents get ours made the way we like it!! Leftovers are pretty tasty too!! =)"
