Homemade Thin Crust Pizza Dough
Homemade Thin Crust Pizza Dough. So easy, so good!
10 inch thin crust pizza
all purpose flour
active dry yeast
In a bowl whisk together all purpose flour and salt. Set aside.
In a glass container take warm water and add sugar and active dry yeast to it. Stir and let it sit for 5 minutes. [Do use warm and NOT hot water, around 110 F degrees is good].
After 5 minutes, you will see froth on top, this means yeast is activated. If there are no bubbles/froth, discard the water and start over again.
Add the water-yeast mixture to the flour, mixing as you add with a wooden spoon or spatula.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface.
Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes till all flour is incorporated.
The dough will be smooth, soft and spring back when you poke it.
Divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
Roll each dough thinly into a round (or any shape you want) of 1/4 inch thickness. At this point you can also freeze one dough if not using it right now.
Transfer rolled dough to a baking pan lined with parchment paper or sprinkled with cornmeal. You can also use pizza stone here.
Preheat oven to 500 F degrees.
Now spread the sauce, topping and cheese of your choice.
Bake at 500 F degrees for 5 minutes and then rotate the pan 180 degree and bake for another 3-4 minutes till the cheese is all bubbly and melted.
Slice and serve.
