Remember that Pillsbury pizza dough?

We tried it the other night. I got a tube of the thin crust. I already had some Ragu pizza sauce on hand (I got it for free from a Jewel Your Bucks deal) and tons of mozzarella cheese. I preheated the oven as directed and got to work. I THOUGHT (should have looked!) I could use a round pizza pan. It turns out the directions indicate you are supposed to use a cookie sheet. Ooops. It was no turning back, however, once I'd rolled and finagled it onto the round pan. Needless to say it wasn't perfectly straight and even. I had to massage it and avoid tearing it. Seems to me that most pizzas I consume are ROUND so why the dough would need to be a rectangle is beyond me.

But I digress.

I baked the dough as directed for 5 minutes in the oven. I should have baked it longer in retrospect. We applied lots of sauce and cheese and set it back in the oven for another 10 minutes. The kids really liked it, but I was REALLY hoping for a thin and CRISPY crust. This crust was thin, but not as crisp as I'd like. The flavor, however, was very good. We all agreed the Ragu pizza sauce is LAME (not really ever been a fan but it was on hand). And the normal Kraft mozzarella cheese was really good. I think with better sauce and a few extra topping and a little longer to pre-bake the crust and I'd give it an A+.

so with you on the RAGU, I usually end up buying a frozen pizza, but always have ambitions of making my own! (I have, however, done cookie pizzas - so much fun!)

I'd love top find some really good sauce. That's a critical step. This is probably only the second or third homemade pizza I've made. I'm known for my Thai Peanut Chicken pizza that gave us all food poisoning ten years ago(bad cilantro).
