Thin crust pizza dough
My family and I don’t eat pizza too often but when we do we are quite picky, especially about the crust so we’re always looking for pizza places that use a thin pizza crust recipe. We love our pizza with super thin crust and we make a big deal about certain topping ingredients too.
We also favor homemade pizza. It tastes way better and we love the amazing smell that spreads all around the house! We decided to give homemade pizza dough a try and came up with this crazy easy crispy pizza dough recipe.

Thin pizza crust recipe
To make this thin pizza crust recipe I only needed a few simple ingredients, you probably already have in your pantry, just like me. I used all purpose flour that I first sifted and dry yeast, 1 pk of 1/4 oz. You can replace it with fresh yeast (just double the amount). I added olive oil because we love how great our pizza crust tastes with olive oil, salt and water. And that’s pretty much all you need to make an amazing thin pizza crust recipe!
I mixed the dry ingredients then I added the wet ingredients and mixed well, followed by a little bit of kneading until my dough got pretty stretchy/elastic. This is when I floured the table and rolled 1/4 of the dough out until it was super think. I carefully transferred it to a pizza pan and added out favorite ingredients. Depending on the toppings, a pizza made with my crust recipe should be baked between 20 and 30 minutes, at 420 F. This recipe makes 4 super thin crusts or 1 thick crust, for 2 people.
