    Hey the level 1 is actually really good. He even roll out the dough and not that frozen round one and use arugula at the end. These three are really good!

    Level 3 be like: The best time to start making your dough is October 19 every 8 years at 3:57 am because it really brings out the flavor, and let it rise for another 17 years because then you get a nice complex flavor, and then you have to grow your tomatoes, and you have to pick them right when they finish riping, not a day longer because or else your pizza will have an old rotten flavor. Then you have to grow all of your herbs and seasonings and weigh then all before crushing the tomatoes in with the herbs and seasonings into your sauce. Then you have to milk a cow at 6:21 pm and age that milk into cheese for 2 years, 11 months, 3 days, 6 hours, 49 minutes, 2 seconds, and 138 milliseconds. Then you spread 3/4 cups of sauce into the dough that is shaped in a circle that is 5 inches in radius and 1/3 of an inch in thickness. Then sprinkle just enough cheese to coat the pizza and the bake until golden brown. You must check the pizza in the oven every 37 seconds to make sure it doesn't burn. Then you can eat it.
