Thin Crust Pizza Dough Recipe
A thin and crispy pizza dough recipe that is perfect for pizza made in the oven, grill or in a wood fire pizza oven.
Servings: 6 medium pizzas
- 7 cups white bread flour plus more for dusting
- 1 tablespoon fine sea salt
- 4 1/2 teaspoons active dried yeast 2 packets
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 ½ cups lukewarm water 100 -110°F
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt and set aside.
In a medium bowl, add the water and mix in the yeast, sugar and olive oil and let sit for approximately 5 minutes until foamy.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Slowly pour in half of the wet ingredients.
Using a fork, bring the flour in gradually from the sides and combine it with the liquid. Keep mixing and add in the remaining water mixture.
When it all starts to come together, bring the dough to a floured surface and knead it until you have a smooth, springy dough ball.
In a large bowl, coat the insides with extra virgin olive oil. Add the dough bowl to the bowl, then flip over so the top of the dough has been coated in the olive oil from the bottom of the bowl.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm room for about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
Punch down the dough to release the air.
Divide the dough into little balls. On a floured surface roll out each dough ball to ¼ inch thickness.
Add your favorite sauce and ingredients and cook at a high temperature in a pizza oven, grill or in your home oven on a hot pizza stone.
Dough balls can be stored in plastic wrap in the freezer for 6 months
