No Fail Homemade Pizza Crust

This was given to me by a friend 30 years ago and is still my favorite. No waiting for the yeast to rise.


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • "egg sized" butter (about 4 Tbsp.)
  • Ad
  • 1 pkg. regular active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)


Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Knead on a lightly floured surface until well blended, a couple of minutes. Press out in your pizza pan. Top with your favorite toppings and bake 35 minutes or until crust is golden at 350 degrees F.

You can make bread sticks from this crust, do not over bake them. Brush them with oil or egg-white what ever you prefer, sprinkle with garlic salt and bake around 10 minutes. Check one to see if they are done.

What is "one egg size butter" ?

Editor's Note: We have corrected it above. It is about 4 Tbsp. Ann says the recipe is very forgiving and she submitted it the way it was given to her.
