What kind of Parmesan cheese? Freshly grated from the fridge, or the dry kind from the shelf you shake on pizza?
You should NEVER use the dry kind!
So glad google sent me to this recipe. I sadly discovered I was out of cheese after I put it in the oven. Even without the cheese it was amazing.
Hi Lauren, great. Please try again with cheese, it’s amazing!
