Quick pizza dough

This dough uses baking soda instead of yeast as the leavening agent, so no waiting! It is a fast alternative to dough that requires extensive kneading and rising. When baked, this is a more bread-like dough, which I love, and it's perfect for things like stuffed pizza or calzones. I found this recipe online somewhere years ago and I've been using it ever since.

2 1/2 c. flour
2 3/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. olive oil
3/4 - 1 c. water

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Add 3/4 cup water and oil. Stir with fork until blended and forms a soft ball. If dough is too stiff, add more water, a tablespoon at a time. It should be soft, but not sticky. Knead about 3 minutes on lightly floured surface until smooth.
