The following is an excerpt from Raw Food for Real People by Rod Rotondi (New World Library, 2010). The excerpt is from chapter 7: Dehydration: Crackers, Croquettes, Pizza, and Bread.  

My dad explained that a truly great pizza always has three levels. First, the bottom of the crust should be crispy, so the first experience of biting into a slice should be the crispiness. The second level is a slight chewiness where the crispy crust blends with the topping to create a chewy middle ground. Finally, a warm and moist top finishes off the perfect pizza bite. All right, so let’s start with the crust.
