  • 9. Divide dough in half. Place each half onto the center of prepared pizza pan.

  • 16. Additional notes
  • 17. I find it better to completly bake pizza crust before putting your toppings. This will prevent pizza crust from becoming soaky. After I put topping, I lightly brushed exposed edges with olive oil.
