  1. The alcohol in the vodka replaces some of the water in the crust. Alcohol is not conducive to the formation of gluten thus lessening the risk of a chewy crust. This reduces the risk of over-working your crust.

    Actually, most of the alcohol will evaporate during the baking process, leaving… nothing.

    Hope this helps.
