Ranch Crust Dust

Inspired by the mail-order packets of herbs and spices that Hidden Valley Ranch-founder Steve Henson started selling in 1954, we made our own homemade ranch crust dust. Our secret ingredient is buttermilk powder — a dehydrated version of the cultured dairy product — which gives our spice blend that particular beloved tang. You can find it on Amazon or at your local supermarket. Just brush some melted butter on your crust, sprinkle on a healthy dose of ranch powder post-bake, and you may find yourself wanting to eat crust-first.

Notes: Instead of sprinkling over butter, you can serve this as a dry dip for crusts. 

5 minutes

1 cup (240 milliliters)

mixing bowl

4 tablespoons (25 grams) buttermilk powder
1 tablespoon (2 grams) dried parsley
1 tablespoon (3 grams) dried dill
1 teaspoon (1 gram) dried chives
1 tablespoon (10 grams)  garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoons (7.5 grams) sea salt
1 teaspoon (2 grams) freshly ground black pepper

Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir until combined. Season to taste, adding more salt if necessary.

Brush your baked pizza crust with melted butter (unless you plan to use the dust as a dip).
