It's more of a pretzel-full on cracker crust thin stuff, that is a pain in the rear to do without a press.

If I'm making my own sauce, I often use a similar recipe. A few more spices and fresh pressed tomatoes if they are in season, but Contadina does make some decent paste and sauce. I can't do dry basil though, ever. Just a thing with me, MUST be freshly chopped.

I think I've had it once, liked it if I'm remembering right. I play around with cheese blends a little, but everything I make starts with a provolone and mozzarella base. Lasagna, pizza, twice baked pasta...all of them get the same treatment. It's a very neutral yet tasty starting point that blends well with small amounts of anything else.
