Unsual Recipe

At least, I think so.  Anyone care to try it?

This recipe is for 4 thin crust 16" pizza's.

1 tablespoon dry yeast
2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons tenderflake or crisco (tenderflake gives golden colour)
6 to 8 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (depending on your thickness)
2 teaspoons fine salt
2 eggs
half cup milk
half cup 7-up or soda
warm water as needed for soft, medium texture when mixing flour

1•Put the yeast, sugar, olive oil, tenderflake, two eggs, milk and 7-up into a large bowl and let sit for 5 minutes, until the yeast dissolves and the liquid appears creamy.
2• In a large bowl add the flour, salt and the mixture. Gently mix with hands or electric dough mixer and add warm water as neede until a soft, medium texture is achieved.
5• Once the dough blends well together and has a smooth texture remove it from bowl and roll it into a long sausage shape and cut in 4 even slices.
6• Knead the dough until it is smooth, springy, pliant into 4 balls.
This should take about 5 to 8 minutes. Return the dough on a oiled pan and cover with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled.
Rising generally taken 2 to 3 hours. Makes four large 16 inch pizzas. This recipe courtesy Pizzazz Pizza (circa 1989)

I would say that the recipe is a Canadian one because of the use of 7-up, which is very popular in pizza dough in Canada, and also because of the spelling of "flavour". The recipe is also quite close to this "Quebec" recipe posted some time ago by our esteemed Canadian member Canadianbacon:,1224.msg10982/topicseen.html#msg10982.
