  2. In a large bowl add flour, baking powder & salt, Italian seasoning & cheese. Mix well.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine water & olive oil.
  4. Slowly add the water mixture to the flour. Mix until the dough forms a ball.
  5. Sprinkle extra flour on work area, knead dough 3-4 minutes.
  6. Lightly coat baking sheet or pizza pan with cooking spray. Using your hand, spread dough evenly on pan, about ¼ inch thick. Bake 15 minutes, or until golden brown & cooked through.
