     Pro-Tips 
    • **Salty like a well-behaved feminist
    • ** Make sure that you are hydrating the dough. The dough should be soft and supple and somewhat pliable unlike your demand to take down patriarchy
    • ** If your dough is stretching easily that means it was well hydrated and not overworked, exactly how you should be.
    • ** You do this to deflate the pie and stop it from rising. Much like what patriarchy did to women.
    • ** Pick your own toppings!! Crostata is not judgey and accepting of All
