Domino's has publicly renounced the "30 minutes or less" slogan, the foundation—indeed the very building blocks of (pizza chain) life—on which its business has rested for decades. Mass chaos (in my head) has ensued. Now I know how Katy Perry feels.
'Pan Pizza' on Serious Eats
I've got a confession to make: I love pan pizza. I'm not talking deep-dish Chicago-style with its crisp crust and rivers of cheese and sauce, I'm talking thick-crusted, fried-on-the-bottom, puffy, cheesy, focaccia-esque pan pizza, dripping with strings of mozzarella and robust sauce. If only pizza that good were also easy to make at home. Well here's the good news: It is. This is the easiest pizza you will ever make. Seriously. All it takes is a few basic kitchen essentials, some simple ingredients, and a bit of patience.
We've gone through a lot of pizza styles and recipes here at The Pizza Lab, but I still often get asked "what's the best pizza crust recipe you know?"

Jackpot, eh?
