Oil the bowl some
« on: September 19, 2006, 12:53:56 AM »
Many recipes call for exact ingredient measurement and then say oil the bowl or coat the dough with oil or both.  A shot of Pam is not the same as a Tablespoon of olive oil.  If you keep oiling the dough and the bowl and then coating the dough prior to topping, it could be a significant addition.  If you don't want any oil in your dough, watch out for this procedure.  If you wanted just a little oil, again account for the bowl, the dough, the pan  etc

If you do everything by feel - never mind.

I'm not being a stickler. I've added some Crisco.
