Baking Powder Pizza Crust

For this Thursday's weekly pizza, I choose to make the BAKING POWDER PIZZA DOUGH recipe from the cookbook. This is a very quickly assembled dough that requires no rising. Flour, baking powder, salt, and butter are combined in a food processor, and milk is added to make the mixture stick together.

After the dough is mixed, it is rolled out into a baking pan and baked for a few minutes, and then topped with pizza toppings and put back into the oven to finish crisping.

This dough is very biscuit-like, and i did not think I would like it as a pizza crust. However, it was very good, dense and crispy. It will not be my go to pizza crust recipe, but I will use it again if I decide to make a pizza at the last minute and don't have enough time to make a yeast based pizza dough.

  1. I love this cookbook! Scanning through just a few of your posts on the first page, I see a bunch of recipes that I've made. I don't cook from this book as much now as I used to, but I really credit Lemlin with teaching me the basics of vegetarian cooking.
