I live to eat, not eat to live...in the world of a foodie nazi

You can hardly go wrong with pizza, right? Wrong! In a food nazi's world, there are many things that can go wrong - crust is too thick, cheese is not melted enough, pizza is cold, ingredients are not cooked...and that is why Trader Joes provides everything for a do-it-yourself pizza meal so you can make it exactly how you like it! And the following is how I like to do it...
Toppings: mushrooms, arugula, panchetta
mozzarella / parmesan cheese
garlic salt / garlic powder
For best results, preheat oven to 425. Flatten dough to your likeness of thickness (or thinness for me). Place in oven for 8-10 minutes to pre-cook the dough. After you take it out, you can flatten the crust even more.
Add sauce & toppings. Place back into oven for another 10-15 minutes until everything is cooked & crust is crispy (I like thin crispy crust pizzas).
