– 3 ½ Cups Flour plus additional for handling
– 1 Tbs.Salt

4. Dust your hand with flour and knead and knead dough for 5 minutes.

7. After dough rises knead again for 2 min.

9. Spread dough on greased pan (grease with Crisco)
10. Prick dough with fork and bake at 400 degrees until brown on the bottom – remove from oven (I like baking the dough first it’s very crispy, then I add top ingredients)
