Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to broil. Combine all dry ingredients and mix until blended. Add eggs and mix until well combined. Add boiling water and mix until dough thickens and start to stick to beaters.
  2. To make the crust you can either use a tortilla press like THIS one, or you can use a large pan. If using a tortilla press, place a piece of parchment (I spray with oil to help keep it from sticking) on the bottom of the press. Divide your dough into 8 similar sized balls. Place one ball in the center of the press and place another piece of parchment on top. Close and use the handle to press the dough very thin. Remove from parchment and place on a greased baking sheet or pizza stone. If using a pan, place a ball of dough on a piece of parchment on your counter and place another piece of parchment on top. Use the flat bottom of the pan to press until very thin (about 8-9 inches in diameter).
  3. Spray the dough or brush with oil (to keep the sauce from making the dough soggy).
  4. Note: for a crispier crust, you can put the crust under the broiler for a few minutes until it starts to brown and then add your toppings.
  5. Add your sauce and toppings.
  6. Place in oven and Broil for 15 minutes or until cheese starts to brown. Makes 8 8-9 inch personal pizzas.

Then remove and add sauce and toppings. Wrap in tin foil and freeze. Then when you need a quick meal, remove it from the tin foil and bake them in a 425 degree F oven for 10-12 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.
