Thin Crust Dough

Ingredients:

  • 1 envelope Red Star Dry Yeast (#110400)
  • 1/4 tsp. Sugar (#110650)
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm Water
  • 1-3/4 cups All-Purpose Flour or Hi Gluten Flour (#100150)
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt (#110600)

Directions:

  1. Stir yeast and sugar into water, let sit for eight minutes or so.  Prepare Thin Crust Dough according to recipe found in Recipes Section.
  2. In a bowl (or food processor) mix flour and salt.
  3. Add the yeast mixture.  If using a food processor, continue running until dough forms a ball, 10-20 seconds.  By hand, mix with a sturdy spoon until ready to knead.
  4. On a floured surface, turn out dough.  Knead dough for 2 minutes or so.  If dough is a little sticky, dust your fingers and counter with flour (but as little as possible).
  5. Roll out by hand for a 12″ pizza.  Place in lightly oiled pizza pan using your fingertips to press up to the edge and forming a shallow lip.  Sauce, cheese, and top with desired ingredients.
  6. Bake at 500F in pre-heated oven for 8-12 minutes, the edges will turn a nice golden brown when done.  Dough will be firm and crispy, not soggy and soft like many other doughs.
