Did you know that not all pizza crust recipes have to be made with yeast? In some parts of the country, pizzas are made with crusts that rise using baking powder or baking soda. These recipes make a crust that is more cracker-like than bread like, which is absolutely delicious with your favorite pizza toppings.
You can buy a baking mix or biscuit mix for this super easy recipe, but why not make your own? Bis-Qwik Baking Mix is a good thing to have on hand. It's cheaper than the purchased mixes and you can control what goes into it, which means no artificial or weird ingredients.
Top this crust after it's formed with your favorite pizza toppings. Mine include the sauce from My Special Pizza, pepperoni, sliced cooked onions and garlic, sliced cooked mushrooms, lots of Havarti and Colby cheese, and perhaps some other cooked veggies. Enjoy every delicious bite.
- 1-1/2 cups baking mix OR Bis-Qwik Baking Mix
- 1/3 cup hot water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a 12" pizza pan with solid shortening and sprinkle it with cornmeal to coat.
In a medium bowl, combine the baking mix, water, and olive oil, and beat hard with a spoon until a dough forms.
Press the dough into the prepared pizza pan, dipping your fingers in flour to prevent sticking as you work. Top the dough with your favorite pizza toppings as desired, then bake it at 425 degrees F for 12 to 17 minutes or until crust is brown and toppings are thoroughly heated and the cheeses bubbles and starts to brown.
