But I had backup ideas. So here's what we did:
A few days earlier I'd seen this Stonefire "Italian thin pizza crust" on sale at the store. The expiration date wasn't for another two weeks so I figured it would be good to have in the house for a night when we didn't know what we wanted (we always agree on pizza on such occasions) or we didn't get around to eating until too late to get food from a restaurant. It turned out it worked perfectly for this evening.
The crust looked fine - certainly better than most other pre-made crusts. There was only one problem.
