Self-Rising Pizza Crust
From: Hillbilly Housewife
For the Crust:
2-1/2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dry yeast
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup oil
In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and yeast. Stir it up to distribute the salt and yeast evenly. Add the water and oil. You may need a spoonful or two more of water if the day is dry. Mix the dough with a wooden spoon until it forms a big ball in the middle of the bowl. It will be a little stiffer than biscuit dough. Knead the dough about 10 or 12 times and then form it into a ball. Place the ball in the center of 16-inch pizza pan, or a 9 by 13-inch rectangular pan. Use your hands and a rolling pin, to press the dough into the pan. I find a rolling pin most effective in this effort. The dough will be a medium thickness.
Top the crust with a sauce and toppings of your choice. Bake at 400° for about 15 to 20 minutes. Eat and enjoy. Makes 1 pizza.
8 ounce can of tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning OR 1/2 teaspoon basil & 1/4 teaspoon oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon EACH sugar & onion powder
- 1 tablespoon oil for flavoring (optional)
In a large cereal bowl combine the tomato sauce, Italian Seasoning (or basil and oregano), garlic powder, sugar, onion powder and oil. Mix it well and spread it on the pizza crust. This makes enough for a single 16-inch crust. The recipe may be doubled or tripled as desired.
