Time-Saver
Short on time? Omit the string cheese, and press the dough just on the bottom of the pizza pan, not over the side.
Serve-With
Serve this special pizza just like pizzerias do by providing containers of grated Parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper flakes for sprinkling on pizza as desired.
