I make this at least once a week for either just me or my whole family. I prefer it a little thicker but my children like it really thin, crisp and well-cooked. We had a hard time finding something to cook it on that doesn’t stick. So far the best thing we’ve found is stoneware but it needs to have sides so we do several pie pans so everyone can have their own pizza. A frying pan works ok too but I gave up after both my husband and I burned ourselves on the handle.
