After returning from my trip, I tried a ton of recipes, but none of them tasted as good as what I had in Philly. My friend Jenny, who lived in Philly for a while came to the rescue and sent me… Read more »

I have been trying to reduce my gluten intake, but I love love looove pizza. I have tried a few similar recipes for this kind of crust, but they always turn out soggy… so I ended up making a few adjustments based off of my trial and error from other recipes and created my own.
