  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Heat the water, margarine and salt in a pot until the margarine is melted
  3. Bring this mixture to a boil, remove from the flame and add all the matzoh meal into the pot at once, stirring very quickly..
  4. Return to low heat and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Keep stirring. The dough should come away from the sides of the pot and form a rough ball.
  6. Remove from the heat and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  7. Beat in 1 egg.
  8. When the dough is smooth and the egg has been fully incorporated into it, beat in another.
  9. Keep doing this until all 5 eggs have been added and the mixture is completely smooth. (You will get your daily exercise if you do this by hand with a wooden spoon)
  10. Spread the dough thinly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper in the form of a pizza pie. Wet your fingers with cold water to better form the pies. You can make one large or several smaller crusts.
    I would go with the smaller crusts, as the dough bakes into a delicate”bread” and one large crust may not be supportive enough.
  11. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the crusts can hold their shape
  12. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  13. Afterwards, you can put on your sauce, cheese and toppings and bake for another 15- 20 minutes .
