With half of the dough, you’ve just made I suggest making a nice a savory pizza with the toppings of your choice. You are the head chef of your kitchen so let your imagination conjure up a delicious mix of ingredients to top your homemade pizza dough!
Example:

With the other half of your dough, I suggest making a dessert pizza, this will no doubt WOW your guests and loved ones with a sweeter touch on an Italian classic. Replace your savory ingredients with sweet ones. For example, have a Nutella base with fruits as toppings, I suggest Bananas and Strawberries and a sprinkle of brown sugar on top. It is the perfect use of this amazing homemade dough!
