Michelle's Pizza Crust or Homemade Taco Shells


2 c
flour (I use 1 cup white and 1 cup either brown rice or whole wheat, just to be a little healthie)
1 t
baking powder
1 t
2 T
3⁄4 c
warm water (start with half cup and then add more to get the ball of dough consistency that looks right)


Mix all together with hands until you get a ball of dough. Then let sit in a sealed container for about 20 minutes. To make pizza crust, roll out dough on floured surface with floured rolling pin until the size you want. Then I put the dough on my pizza stone and put the toppings on. For sauce: I have only found one brand of tomato paste that the only ingredient is tomatoes so I buy that kind and mix a little bit of that with water, season it and it makes a great pizza sauce. Then I top with lots of veggies, ground beef and mozzarella cheese. Then I pop in a hot oven for 10 minutes or so
To use them as taco shells: After letting the ball of dough rest for 20 minutes, break off small balls about the size of golf balls and roll out on a floured surface. Then put your already cooked ground beef inside. Fold one edge over to match with the other side. They will actually seal if you dab some water with your finger on one of the edges first. Fry in hot canola oil about 30 seconds on each side and you have a taco! Then I cut open the sealed edges with a knife and fill with veggies and cheese. It doesn't quite taste like a taco without the taco sauce, but I still love these anyway.
