“About 7 years ago me and a friend had gone to Nevada to visit his family. While we were there the father was making pizza dough. I commented on how much I love to bake and he said he'd tell me the recipe. They had once owned a pizza place, and used this dough at the restaurant. I was amazed at how great it turned out and to this day use no other recipe.”
