Matt’s Meat Lover’s Pizza” by King Arthur Flour

At a glance, this pizza supposedly takes 6 hrs 40 mins. to 6 hrs 43 mins. to make. I think that is a typo because it says before that it is 30 minutes prep time and 20 – 23 minutes baking time. However, it looks and tastes that good I would happily wait almost 7 hours for this to cook.
