The Crispiest, Flakiest, Thin Crust Pizza Dough Recipe EVER!
For all you people who have asked me for my “secret pizza dough recipe” here it is:
Keep on reading for the SECRET TIP!
4 1/2 cups flour.
1 tsp. salt
1 tbs. yeast dissolved in
1 3/4 cups warm water
1/4 olive oil (plus more for pans)
*Note: this dough recipe is great for both thin and thick crust pizzas.
Dissolve the yeast in your warm water.
Add all ingredients together in your kitchen aid (or other mixer with a dough hook) and knead on medium until dough is combines and pulls away from the bowl.
Then let is rest and rise for about 30 minutes to an hour.
You want your dough to be flexible & easy to work with so we can get it nice and thin as pictured above.
This is the secret (INSERT FIREWORKS HERE!!!) to the best crust (I didn’t believe it until my sister in law, Gracie, made me try it…) is to oil your pans with a ton of oil (I already knew that trick) and then oil your crust with even MORE oil once it is on the pan!
Bake your pizza with all your favorite toppings in an oven on 425 ℉ until your crust comes out looking like this:
You want to be able to lift the crust up without it drooping… it’s almost like a cracker texture.
It is sooooooo good. The olive oil not only makes it the crunchiest crust you can imagine, but it also gives the most amazing flavor to your pizza!
Doesn’t this make you want pizza right now?! This crust is perfection!
Hope it inspires you to make your own crust! It really isn’t hard at all. We used to buy the refrigerated dough in a bag…. and let me tell you if you are doing that, you are really missing out!
