Ranchwife’s Panbread (originally Farmgirl Panbread)
3 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
½ t. baking soda
½ t. salt
3 T olive oil (or melted butter)
2 T. honey
1 c. warm water
In a bowl, mix dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients and mix until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and forms itself into a ball. Turn out onto a floured cupboard and roll out for your pizza pan (or as a crust for a meat or veggie pie). Put rolled dough onto a well-oiled pan. Prick crust with a fork. You may pre-bake the crust for 7 minutes or so at this point or you may add your sauce, toppings, cheese, etc. and bake. Bake at 425* F for about 17 minutes or until golden brown. (If you pre-bake, only allow approx. 10 minutes more baking time or until cheese is bubbly)
*You may add Italian spices to the bread dough if you like.
Makes 1 crust.

My dad made us a nifty new gadget for our kitchen. It's a lazy Susan. Our island slab is so big that it's sometimes hard to reach clear across it to hand the butter or the napkins over to the other side so I put a tray in the middle with everything on it. I only mentioned the idea of a lazy Susan to Dad, and had one turned out of his wood shop in no time! I love it, and T. does too. He enjoys spinning it. The ball bearing underneath is supposed to bear up under 250 pounds, so I won't be shocked if Papa sets the grandgirls on it and gives them a spin!
