Instructions
For the Dough
If you have a bread machine you put all the ingredients in at the dough program and let it do all the work for you.

If you do not have the machine then you will have to do it the old fashion way.

You put all the dry ingredients together and then add the water and oil and knead until you make a ball that does not stick to your hands.

At the end of both ways, you work with the dough, form it in a rectangular or circular disk and put it in a round or rectangular tray.

How thick the dough will be, depends on how thick you want the crust.
