This turned out fantastic!! We loved it! It's super easy especially if you have a bread maker or use a pre-made crust. It's not your typical pizza... It's more like something you would have at California Pizza...its very gourmet. As you can see by the picture I am not the best at rolling out pizza dough but nevertheless it turned out great. I actually like to make up the garlic spread and use it on other things like crackers and for a veggie dip! Excellent!!

  • 1 1/8 cups water (70 to 80 degrees F)
