Thin Crust Dough


1 envelope dry yeast

1/4 teaspoon sugar

3/4 cup lukewarm water (105 F)

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

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.
