  • I make this with a bread machine, layering in this order: warmed water/ milk on bottom, dry ingredients, egg, yeast. Use pizza dough setting. Proceed with spreading dough in oiled pan. – Stephanie
  • The longer you let this rise, the thicker it will be. It continues to rise while baking. Top with Aunt Diomira’s Pizza Sauce. This is almost identical to Aunt Diomira’s pizza.
