-Roll out each section into thin round crusts and fold about 1 cm around the edge of pizza to form the outer crust.

Makes 2 pizzas  1 pizza makes 8 slices

For a more mexican flavored pizza crust
-Replace 1/4 cup of whole wheat and 1/2 cup of white flour with 3/4 cup corn meal.
All other ingredients and procedures are the same.

I top mine with my tomato sauce recipe, roasted peppers, roasted onions, roasted chili peppers, sauted spinach, sliced and cooked zucchini, sauted mushrooms and chili powder =).
