Stir & Roll Pizza Crust

October 13, 2010 at 11:54 am (Italian, Muffins/Breads)

From my momma.  Simple, basic recipe.  Reminds me of my childhood.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup salad oil
  • 2 tablespoons salad oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Measure flour, baking powder, salt, milk and 1/4 cup salad oil into bowl.  Stir vigorously until mixture leaves side of bowl.  Gather dough together and press into a ball.  Knead dough in bowl 10 times to make smooth.  Divide dough in half.

On lightly floured cloth-covered board, roll each half into a 13″ circle.  Place on pizza pan or baking sheet.  Turn up edge 1/2″ and pinch or pleat.  Bruch circles with 2 tablespoons salad oil.  Layer with pizza toppings of your choice  Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

*Variation:  I will sometimes place the crusts in the oven immediately after brushing them with oil (before putting on the toppings) and bake it for about 13 minutes.  This helps to make a fluffier crust.  Add toppings, then bake another 13 or so minutes, or until cheese is melty and done-looking.
