Depending on how thick you make your pizza crust, as well as how big, this recipe does not make two pizzas. Another thing, you have to follow the ingredients exactly and you need to find a cheese and sauce that works for you. Other than that, this is a good recipe and I would recommend it to anyone. - 2/5/10
