I'm hoping someone will have this recipe.

I had bought a bunch of cookbooks by Johna Blinn in the 1980's. These were cheap paperbacks printed on newsprint with titles like "Fabulous Meats" and "Fabulous Italian".

One of them had a wonderful recipe for pizza dough that used powdered milk. I don't remember which book it was in, and can't find all of my books after moving. I really think it was in either the Italian one, or in a Quick Casserole one. The dough was also used for the Calzone recipe on the same page.

I would REALLY appreciate if someone is able to share this recipe!

Thank you!!!

Chandra

I don't have that author, but another name for powdered milk is khoya.  It's sometimes spelled khoa, khawa, or mawa.  If you search for recipes containing these words, you may find something similar.  Good luck!

Thanks for that hint!

I did some more searching and it is from the "Fabulous Italian" book. The dough recipe is on page 58 and the Calzoni recipe is on page 59. Now if I can only figure out what happened to my copy of that book!

You could also try the library, maybe they have the cookbook or could get it for you on interlibrary loan.....good luck!

Jill,

That is a great idea! I may have to do that if I can't locate my copy.

I have about a dozen of her books and wasn't ever sure which one it was until I started this thread. I found the recipe index online.

Thank you!
