Thin Crust Pizza Dough Recipe
Yield: 1 large pizza or 2 medium pizzas
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (110 degrees F.)
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
3 cups bread
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons semolina flour
Dough Relaxer (optional)
3 teaspoons instant active dry
Add all the ingredients in the bread pan of
Bread Machines. Process according to manufacturer's instructions for a dough setting.
Meanwhile preheat the
Pizza Stone or tiles to 450 degrees for 30 minutes. Prepare your favorite pizza toppings.
When the bread machine has completed the dough cycle, remove the dough from the pan to a lightly oiled surface. Knead the dough
several times and form the dough into an oval; cover with plastic wrap or a towel and let rest for 10 minutes.
NOTE: Dough may be refrigerated at this point and stored until ready to use. To store each batch of dough, spray a plastic bag with nonstick
spray and place the dough in it. Store no longer than 7 to 10 days, or if frozen for up to 2 months. If refrigerated or frozen prior to use, allow the portions
to come to room temperature before they are rolled out.
Roll and stretch the dough into a 14-inch circle. Place the dough on the prepared
Pizza Peel (see below).
Makes 1 very large pizza or 2 medium pizzas.
Adding Pizza Ingredients:
Brush the dough with some olive oil and layer your favorite pizza ingredients (toppings).
Bake for approximately 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom and thetop is bubbly.
Remove your pizza from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a serving pan. This cooling down step allows the
crust to stay crisp while it cools. Once cool, using your
Pizza Cutter or Pizza Wheel, cut your pizza into slices and serve.
