Description

Wonderfully flexible pizza dough – top with anything your heart desires.

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons Yeast
  • 1 pinch Sugar
  • 2 cups Warm Water
  • 6 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil

Preparation

1. Dissolve yeast and a little sugar in the warm water. Let stand until foamy.

2. In a bowl combine flour, salt and olive oil. Add the yeast mixture. Work dough to a firm ball. Cover with a moist towel and let rise until doubled in size.

3. Take about 1/4 of the dough and roll it out onto a floured work surface. If you have Wondra flour, that is best for rolling. Grease a baking sheet and lay the dough into it. Repeat with the remaining dough.

4. Cover with any toppings that you please.

5. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes more.

Hmmm….I think I’ll try this one out next time I make pizza. Been looking for a good thin crust recipe and I think this will be just the thing. Have you tried freezing the extra 3 balls of dough for later? I think it would work alright…I will probably try it even if you haven’t yet. Thanks for sharing!!

This recipe is great! It’s so simple and delicious. And, it’s easy to reduce when you only want to make one or two pizzas.

One thing to note: I don’t bake this as instructed. Instead, I turn my oven on as hot as it will go and bake the pizza until it starts to brown a little bit (about 7 minutes).
