The widespread flour shortages have created a situation where we’re grateful just to get our hands on whatever we can get. Whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cake flour, whatever bag is left on the bare shelves, we’ve probably just grabbed it and been happy we could get anything at all. If you are used to baking with self-rising flour but can’t find any, the good news is that it is really, really easy to make your own. Self-rising flour is simply all-purpose flour with a little bit of baking powder and salt added. That’s it. Simply add 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ tsp of salt to one cup of all-purpose flour. Whisk these ingredients together in a bowl, then use as directed for your recipe of choice. Bonus knowledge is you can use your newly-created self-rising flour to make no-yeast pizza dough. A quick and easy recipe is two-ingredient dough is to mix 1.5 cups of self-rising dough to 1 cup of Greek yogurt, which is enough to make one large pizza. Knead the mixture for five minutes until the dough becomes smooth and firm.  You’ll want to roll it out onto a pizza pan, add the pizza sauce, cheese and toppings of your choice, then bake it on a pizza pan at 500°F until the crust is golden and the cheese is nice and bubbly.
