Instructions

Crust

In a small bowl sift together the Flour, Salt and Baking Powder, set aside.

In a large bowl cream together the Sugar and Butter until light and fluffy. Then beat in the Egg, Vanilla

and milk.

Slowly add the flour until a moist dough forms, just pulling away from the sides of the bowl.

Form the dough into a log on a piece of plastic wrap or wax paper and tightly wrap. Refrigerate at least

20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375?.

Take the dough and turn out onto a lightly floured, or powdered sugared surface. Form into a round

and roll out into a pizza crust approximately 1/3” thick. Use your fingers to keep the round shape and

fill in the cracks that form at the edges.

Place onto a nonstick cookie sheet and bake until the center is slightly firm to the touch, 12-14 minutes.

Let cool completely.
