How to Make Easy Pizza Dough Recipe (thin crust dough)

  • Stir yeast and sugar into water. Let it sit for 8 minutes or so.
  • In a bowl (or food processor), mix 1.75 cups unbleached all-purpose flour or bread flour. Add the yeast mixture.
  • If using food processor, continue running until dough forms a ball.
  • If by hand, mix with a sturdy spoon until ready to knead.
  • On a floured surface, turn out dough. Knead for 2 minutes or so.
  • If dough is a little sticky, dust your fingers and counter with flour (as little as possible).
  • Roll out by hand into a 12 inch pizza base.
  • Place in lightly oiled pizza pan. Use fingertips to press up to the edge, forming a shallow lip.
  • Add sauce, cheese, and top with desired ingredients.
  • Bake at 500 F for 12 minutes. The edges will turn a nice golden brown when done.
  • Dough will be firm and crispy, not soggy and soft like other dough.
