Crazy Pizza Crust – Have you ever planned to make something for supper only to realize you’re missing a key ingredient? For instance, homemade pizza was on the menu and I thought I bought our favorite Jiffy Pizza Crust Mix. However, I was wrong. And I had no yeast to make a Homemade Pizza Dough. As luck would have it, I’d seen a facebook meme of something called “Crazy Crust Pizza,” but wanted to find out who posted it before I shared it will y’all. 🙃
So I put on my super sleuthing hat and found the the website! I want to give credit where credit is due so you can take the recipe from here or her site at Sage Trifle. She got the recipe from the back of a bag of Pillsbury flour with a copyright date of 1969! She posted the picture. I just love stuff like that!
Crazy Pizza Crust Batter
Okay, this “crazy crust” is a batter, not a dough. I gave it a try and it turned out great! And then I intentionally made it again. And again. 😋 It’s so much easier and less messy than liberally coating my hands with oil and stretching out springy pizza dough that wants to keep shrinking back into a ball. I’m not saying I quit making traditional pizza dough, but it’s nice to have a great tasting change every now and then. I think you’ll like it, too!

So, I’ve tried several time’s to make this Crazy Pizza Crust low carb, but so far the keto versions have been sadly lacking in both taste and texture. I’ll keep trying, however, I’ve always said eat what you want in moderation. If splurging on a great tasting pizza crust on occasion makes your heart sing, don’t deny yourself! Life is way too tough and way to short to yearn for something so simple. And don’t beat yourself up after you indulge! Most importantly, get right back to your chosen diet or lifestyle.
