Can't I just stretch the dough into a square cookie sheet, top, and then bake? I'm pretty sure that's how my Mom used to make it for us years ago..
Sheesh, the recipies make it look so complicated!
Thanks, Eric Austin Tx.
The easy answer is OF COURSE you can! I made pizza on a rectangular cookie sheet before they started marketing round pans for pizza, and looooong
before they started insisting how much better a "stone" made them.
I still make mine the "old-fashioned" way.
Have at it, and come back and tell us how it went -- how you liked it.
