Pizza Crust Diaster W/ Egg Replacer!

Recommended Posts

I usually use Chebe pizza mix and have really enjoyed it until now. Last night I used Ener G egg replacer because I'm eliminating eggs right now. It was awful! Chalky, chewy, falling apart. What did I do wrong? How else can I make my stand by pizza crusts without eggs? Any advice? Thanks!

Eggs serve several purposes in baked goods. Most of the time, they serve the purpose of binding and/or leavening. In my experience, ener-g egg replacer does a good job of replacing the leavening power of eggs, but does little to compensate for the binding properties. If I were going to make Chebe without eggs, I would use flax gel. 1 Egg = 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed to 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Just combine the flax meal with very hot water and let it sit on the counter until it forms a gel. Then use it like you would an egg. Here is a page with other ideas for replacing eggs. Also, I always add a tablespoon of baking powder to my Chebe because I like the extra boost it gives.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Colleen. I will try this.
