Thin Crust Dough - Recipe

Here is the recipe to make a thin crust dough. To prepare this, what you need are

  • 1 envelope dry yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water (105 F)
  • All purpose flour or bread flour
  • Salt
Preparation :

Stir yeast and sugar into water, let sit for 8 minutes or so. In a bowl (or food processor) mix
1 3/4 cups unbleached all−purpose flour or bread flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add the yeast mixture. If using food processor, continue running until dough forms a ball, 10−20 seconds. By hand, mix with a sturdy spoon until ready to knead. On a floured surface turn out dough. Knead dough for 2 minutes or so. If dough is a little sticky, dust your fingers and counter with flour,
(but as little as possible). Roll out by hand for a 12" pizza. Place in lightly oiled pizza pan using your fingertips to press up to the edge and forming a shallow lip. Sauce, cheese, and top with desired ingredients. Bake at 500F in pre−heated oven for 8−12 minutes, the edges will turn a nice golden brown when done. Dough will be firm and crispy, not soggy and soft like many other doughs.
