Homemade Pizza Dough - What does the oil do?

The Oracle | May 29, 2008 05:15 PM

I finally made my first batch of homemade pizza dough and I loved it! I used this epi recipe:


it was so easy and I was pleased with the results. However, I want to use less oil or no oil (trying to cut out the fat in the 3 Tbsp. oil if I can get away with it) and I'm wondering what would change as a result...

Less crispy? More doughy? Too cakey?

I've seen other recipes that have no oil at all.

...need your expert thoughts!
