Recipe Notes

Dry herbs are always more powerful, so I double or even triple the amount when I use fresh, You can use cheese on tops such as mozzarella, provolone, pizza cheese combo or even Mexican cheese.

Melting cheeses. It always tastes better with some cheese on top. Keep an eye when it is baking. No need to open up the oven, just turn on the lights and peek through. It should be done between 15 and 18 minutes. It will puff up. I like mine to be deeper golden color rather than pale, so just bake depending how you like it.
