I’ve had and used this recipe for years, since, like I was at Mt. Hood, working at Timberline Lodge.
Yeah, that’s another Era in my life. One of the coolest things about living and working up there is meeting amazing people from all corners of the world.
So, I met this Greek guy, and his roomie and my sister and I went on a “double date” together, driving into town to watch Disney’s release of the original “Snow White”. It was scary. No, seriously, that witch was scary!
And we also cooked together, and Greek guy (yea, I can’t remember his name, this was like, 1989, ya’ know) shared this No-Rise-Pizza-Dough with me.

In a large bowl, stir to combine 1 1/4 cups flour, the yeast & sea salt.
