I like this recipe because it's simple and uses ingredients I always have on hand. I got it from my dad, I can't say for sure where it originally came from, but maybe from a Betty Crocker cookbook. This dough also works well for making meat pies.
- Heat oven to 425°F.
- Measure ingredients (except 2nd amount of salad oil) into a bowl.
- Stir vigorously until mixture leaves the side of the bowl.
- Gather dough together and press into a ball.
- Knead dough in bowl 10 times to make smooth then divide dough in half.
- On lightly floured surface roll each half into a 13-inch circle.
- Place on pizza pan.
- Turn up edges 1/2 inch and pinch.
- Brush circles with remaining 2T of salad oil.
- Add toppings and bake for 20-25 minutes or until it looks done.
i was so disappointed with this crust that i joined the site just to review it. there were so many great reviews, but, as with Chef #771965, i was totally bummed out with the consistency of the finished product. the dough stretched out nicely and i thought i was going to get a great thin crust pie, but it turned out grainy, salty and dry instead of crispy and bready. i wasted some high-quality (and expensive!) toppings, so my frugality will force me to eat it against my better judgement. i recommend that future foodies don't waste your time, though. back to boboli for me if i'm pressed for time!
I don't know what I could have done wrong with this one.I was able to roll it and the consistency was good but after cooking it the flavor and consistency I was expecting were just not there.
I have to say it tasted like biscuits. It was edible, but not at all what I expected.
