3 T. ice water
Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk oil and water in a small bowl, then pour into flour mixture. Stir lightly until well blended, added a few drops more water if necessary. Form into a ball and chill a few minutes to make the dough easier to work with.

    The combo of flavors was great, but I used roma tomatos instead of plum…they seemed to take over a bit. Next time I will add a little spinach. I also used a frozen pie crust.
