Another Carbquik Pizza recipe (Criosa)

I took an old Bisquick pizza recipe and used some suggestions from Chefgreg's roll recipe to create a delicious hand held pizza. My kids love it!

1 1/2 tablespoons yeast (I buy it by the bag)
3/4 c. warm water
1 tsp. sugar (I hate using this stuff)
2 1/2 c. Carbquik
1/4 tsp baking soda

Soften yeast in water and sugar, let sit for a few minutes. Add the mix and baking soda. Knead 2 minutes (I have a kitchen aid). Roll into 2 12" circles (actually I made one huge 16" pizza), using a little carbquik to keep it from sticking to the pin. You could probably pat it out into the pan, but mine has holes on the bottom, so I couldn't do that. Put on a greased pizza pan, brush with olive oil. Add pizza sauce and toppings. I let it sit out for about an hour, and it didn't rise much, so I don't know if it is necessary. Bake in 425 degree oven about 15 minutes.

note: I really don't know if you have to add sugar and baking soda - they are not in my original recipe. I'm hoping its true that the yeast consumes the sugar. Chefgreg said to use 1.5 times the yeast, so that's why I add 1 1/2 Tbsp. of it. I didn't notice a strong yeast flavor.

The dough is very easy to work with and I think it might make good bread sticks too.

*This is very very good. The kids fought over the last piece. Of course they're always up to a good fight.
