Haha thanks man, I find it very tasty raw and gross cooked for some reason, When I used to buy the frozen pizza I used to take the frozen peperoni off it and eat it cold.

well, one thing that makes a difference is the quality.  It seems everyone uses that horrible cheap greasy processed tasting stuff.   I can't eat that either.  Have you ever tried any high end pepperoni that comes in a stick.  Many brands put the same name on 2 different products, the high end stick stuff that you have to slice, and then the presliced crap pepperoni.

Thanks Scott, I may have to give that a try, Right now I'm trying to find a different recipe to use then the one I got from Allrecipes, I'm looking for a Chicago style crust that you can bend, but Its a tough search.

is it thin and dense (but still bendable) or is it thin and light,  but cut into squares?

The stuff I make is think and light, You still can cut it but the toppings falls off if you don't hold it right.

no, im not asking about the pizza you make, im asking about the recipe you are looking for.  can you describe it a little better?  I can probably help you find it.

I want the crust to be very FLAKY, but I want the crust be soft on the inside but with a crunch, I've seen the crust I want a few times in other states and on tv shows.


I'm not exactly sure what the style of the crust is.
