Very happy to find this recipe at Linlin's blog. This is my attempt baking these yummy thin crust pizza... Very Happy

Thin Crust Pizza





Dough
(Yield: 2 pcs 12 inch pizza)

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Water
3 TBsp Olive oil
1 tsp Salt
2 cups All purpose flour
2 tsp Yeast

Method:
1. Put ingredient in breadmachine. Knead using dough cycle. If the mixture is too dry, add some more olive oil to become dough.

Note: I cant remember the original recipe posted at Linlin' blog was kneaded by hand or breadmachine. I use breadmachine to knead the dough.

So far based on my three trials, I add 1 TBsp water and 2-3 TBsp olive oil to the mixture as the mixture is too dry to become dough.

2. After the kneading cycle is completed, remove the dough from bread pan. Put the dough into a well greased bowl & turn the dough to coat with the oil. Cover with cling wrap and leave it to rise in a warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.

3. Punch down dough & divide into 2 equal portions.

4. Lightly grease the pizza pan & floured with some flour so pizza will not stick when baked. Roll out dough and transfer to the pizza pan.

5. Spoon tomato sauce over the dough and add your favourite toppings and cheese.

6. Baked pizza in pre-heated oven 230C until crisp and brown on the bottom & cheese is melted on top (about 12 minutes). Serve hot.

Rgds, Connie

Hi Connie,
Can you advise the steps if doing it by hand?
Do you add the yeast into the water first & let it stand for a while before pouring the yeast water into the rest of the ingredients or?

Thanks!

Hi Karrine

Ha ha! I was rushing to make the other day coz my son asked for pizza at 12.30pm. So, I just dumped everything into a big bowl and knead it by hand.

I think it will be easier to knead if you do like what you suggest i.e. to mix the yeast with water first. Let it stand for 5 - 10 minutes. Then, add in the flour, salt and olive oil to mix into a dough and knead it for 10 minutes. (I knead it for 10 minutes only... After that, very tired already... Embarassed )Remember to add extra water and olive oil should you find your dough dry. (Refer to my recipe notes)

Hope this helps...

Rgds, Connie

simonne - to get your pizza crispy you need to make sure your dough base is floured well. You might also want to use a cooking mesh and therefore the steam from the dough does not get stuck on the tin but able to escape. If you use a pizza stone to bake your pizza, then the stone does not like flour on the dough. A pizza stone also makes crispy pizza. Another thing is your oven has to be very hot. In other posts it has been suggested you should bake at 220 C for as short as 12 mins.

Wish you well and hope you come back and let us know how you are progressing.

another suggestion which i read somewhere and also follow.

Partially bake the crust before putting the topping. That will reduce the crust from becoming soggy.

We just had pizza last week using another recipe. I just roll the dough till very thin (about 2 mm - yes, some parts are torn so needs to do patch work) and prebake for 10 mins, add toppings and bake again.

Will try this recipe one day.

We had pizza for dinner last night and I tried this recipe. Dough is definitely too dry. Think I used 1 cup plus 2 - 3 TBSP water and another 2 TBSP olive oil.

Finally used this recipe for pizza dough. Added oregano and minced fresh garlic into the dough. Got thumbs up by picky eaters and requested to make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
