However improving the healthfulness is only one of necessary criteria, the other is that the recipe must either be consistent with the original or improved by the addition. Here for your consideration is an easy, delicious crust made with extra virgin olive oil. This crust brings more to the party than texture and ease of preparation

Pie Crust
2 cups white whole wheat or all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fruity, very fresh extra virgin olive oil
