Pro Tips

**The dough is as forgiving as it is delicious. Don’t worry about the breaks and creases, press it together and it’ll work itself out.

** Wasn’t even trying to make this dirty but here we are.

** I need to check with the millennial committee to see if the PC police allows calling this “Blind Baking”

** If radiation poisoning is your thing you can do this in a microwave as well

** Insert a knife and if it comes out clean it is done
