better-than restaurant pizza

This is more of a food-review than an actual recipe but I've just GOT to share our latest trick. We have been using Namaste Pizza Crust Mix for the past three years and while it's GOOD we thought perhaps we could try and make it better. So... we used it to make a "deep dish" pizza!

Here's what we did. Follow the directions on the baggie to make BOTH crusts at once. Then spread them in the bottom of a 9x13" baking pan & bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Take it out, top it with your favorite toppings, then bake for an additional 10-15 minutes and voila! Deep-dish herbed crust! I wouldn't recommend this as a regular addition to the table as the calories & carbs must be positively astronomic. But for special occasions like today I'll make an exception.

Today is our 16th anniversary, and to celebrate we're indulging in our latest pizza of choice. Instead of traditional sauce, we used barbecue sauce! That and a little cheese made the zestiest, yummiest pizza I've had since... well, possibly ever! And it's so quick to make up that it's almost dangerously convenient.

Enjoy! In moderation, of course.
