Quick Pizza Follow-Up!

Only posting this because several friends read  my "nasty" pizza experience the other day!  Thanks for taking the time to read about my cooking antics on my scrap blog!  I guess I needed to vent....
I almost decided that homemade Prosciutto, Baby Spinach, and Smoked Gouda Cheese Pizza was NOT in the cards for me. Then I bought a frozen pizza dough at Sprouts. I had my reservations...no not at the local restaurant, but about the dough meeting any expectations that I had. I love cracker-thin crunchy crust and that's not easy to get here in Phoenix!

Soo, long story short, I thawed out the dough today, rolled it out pretty darn thin, and managed to transfer it to the pre-heated pizza stone without mishap.
After baking for 5 minutes, I took it out, layered on the goodies, and finished baking.  I have to tell ya, I had my fingers crossed the whole time.
It may not be the most perfectly shaped pizza, but man was it good!  "Yum Yum, give me some", as my friend, Amie, would say! And it made a 16" gourmet pizza for about $10!  
Whew, I have redeemed my Rachel Ray status!
