Anyone can make this easy, chewy crust! Recipe makes three medium sized crust. Can be frozen and utilized for a quick
pizza fix. Helpful hint, the refrigeration step is a must to assist in hydrating the dough as well as aid in dough extensibility. Use All-purpose flour or 50%
whole wheat flour, but refrain from using
bread flour as bread flour would make the dough exceedingly difficult to stretch. Side note, if the dough is stretched to an adequate thinness (roughly 6" x 4" flat bread pieces) the dough pieces can be used to create tasty flat bread for sandwiches! There is a multitude of ways to utilize the delicious dough! Let us know what you think!
