The pan that I use is a 14x2 pan. When I spread the dough out it's somewhat around 3/16". I never roll the dough out. For that reason, you will not get that nice biscuit texture that I love. Now the oil.. I was wondering the same thing when I was making this one... So by chance I measured it for curiosity.. 2 1/2 tablespoons is how much I used.. Normally I just put it in and measure it by eye.. Now about your diet... Believe it or not, I have been making these pizzas for around 6 months now and I make one just about every weekend. I have been losing weight slowly but steadily. I was 218lbs around 4 months ago and as of today I weight 187. My wife is a RN and like she is always telling me... "Eat in moderation!!" I know it is really hard to but it's working for me. Just watch what you get for your pizza. Get fresh ingredients and look at the labels. But hey.. Thanks for the compliment on the pizza..
