Pizza, Pizza!

So I finally found a yummy homemade pizza crust recipe!

I made this pizza a few weeks ago and wanted to post the recipe here so I don't have to worry about loosing the scrap piece of paper it's written on. The crust recipe is below plus what I put on this particular pizza in the photo, although you can use whatever combo you'd like. I really like red onions, gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and pears (no sauce) YUM!
