    Hi, I have my very first show Tuesday night and am trying to decide what to make! I was going to make the Garden Veg. Pizza, but I made one and my friend didn't really like it that much. I may have about 25 people there and am a nervous wreck!!! If you have any suggestions for other recipes I would oh so much appreciate it :)

    Sounds yummy, here is a silly question, does this just get baked in a 9x 13 pan? Thanks again!

    I don't have the pan

    I don't have the skillet yet, could I use the bar pan or the round stone? Thanks a bunch :)

    Rectangular Baker

    Do you have the rectangular baker? It'll work in that.


    P.S. It really is good!
