About this recipe:Often I don't have ingredients that you would only use once in a while, like yeast. In light of that, I stumbled upon this recipe which uses baking powder instead, but still makes a delicious crust that is cheap and easy. This recipe could serve 3 people or 2 very hungry people.

Mix flour, salt, baking powder and water until most water is absorbed. Then put on floured counter and knead just until workable and spreadable, about 2 minutes. You can add a little more water or flour until the desired consistency is reached.
Put on pizza pan and spread until it reaches all edges of the pan. It may help to use a rolling pin to assist in flattening the dough before you put it on the pan. With your fingers, spread vegetable oil on crust (this helps so tomato sauce won't soak into crust). The measurement of oil is just a guideline, as long as all of the surface area of the crust is covered that is fine.
Spread with your tomato base and top with the meat of your choice. You can also add onions, peppers, or mushrooms. Top with cheese and place in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until toppings have browned.
I love variety, so instead of using a tomato base I used BBQ sauce. I then topped it with mushrooms, onions, bacon, and cheese. It also tastes great with chicken!
Give the crust more flavour by adding about 3 cloves of garlic and 2 teaspoons of parsley flakes.
disaster my tray was too small and my dough too thick! Was tasteless and crumbly on the bite and my toppings.. well i needed more. Had i used HALF the dough and made a thin crust this might of worked? I also used rice flour that might not of helped... i think next time ill put an egg in? - 20 Feb 2012
