Recipe Ingredients for thin crust pizza dough

1 package active dry yeast
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil

Recipe Directions for thin crust pizza dough

  1. # Mix a little sugar into the warm water.

  2. # 2 Sprinkle yeast on top.

  3. # 3 Wait for 10 minutes or until it gets all foamy.

  4. # 4 Pour into a large bowl.

  5. # 5 Add flour, salt, olive oil.

  6. # 6 Combine.

  7. # 7 Knead for 6-8 minutes until you have a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (add a bit more flour if you need to).

  8. # 8 Cover and let rest for 20-30 minutes.

  9. # 9 Lightly grease two 12-inch pizza pans.

  10. # 10 Sprinkle with a little bit of cornmeal.

  11. # 11 Divide dough in half.

  12. # 12 Place each half on a pizza pan and pat it with your fingers until it stretches over the whole pan.

  13. # 13 Try to make it thicker around the edge.

  14. # 14 If desired, pre-bake at 425 F for 10 minutes (I don't always do this).

  15. # 15 Then spread with pizza sauce and use the toppings of your choice.

  16. # 16 Bake at 425 F for 10-20 minutes longer or until bubbly and hot.

  17. # 17 Makes 2 12-inch pizzas.

  18. # 18 If you don't want to use all the dough, you can freeze it.

  19. # 19 Take a portion of dough, form into a ball, rub olive oil over it and place it in a freezer bag (the oil makes it easier to take out of the bag).

  20. # 20 When you want to make a pizza, take dough out of freezer and allow to thaw before using.
