Picture this:  tough day at work or busy weekend running around.  Feeling like a pizza but did not make the dough in time for it to rise.  No Problem.  I got you.

This makes a perfect sized pizza for two.  It is light and crispy and ready to go in 15-20 minutes.  Happy kneading!

What you need:

1 cup of all-purpose flour, like King Arthur

½ teaspoon of salt (I like salt flakes)

¼ teaspoon of Baking Powder

1/3 cup of water and

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Pizza Topping Options:

Because this is a super thin crust, toppings should be lighter than with a traditional dough pizza.  Simple sauce, mozzarella and basil are phenomenal.  Pesto with red onion and crab meat, yummy. Perfect for a dessert pizza with Nutella and candy toppings.

What to do:

Crank up your oven with the stone in place to about 500 degrees. Should get nice and hot, say 45 minutes.  You can do this on a hot grill too.

Mix the first three ingredients in a bowl.

Stir in the water and olive oil until well mixed

Pour out onto a floured counter or board and knead into a ball.

Wrap it in plastic wrap, leave it on the counter and go about your business for 20 minutes.

When you are ready, roll it out into a circle and you can either pre-cook it for 2 minutes and then top it; or top it and cook for about 6-8 minutes total depending on how hot your stone became in the oven.

Enjoy it. Super easy!

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
