Quick and Easy ~ Regular and Thin Pizza Crust

Thin Pizza Crust

Thin Pizza Crust

With costs rising faster than homemade dough, our pizza days were dwindling away. However, now that I have found this recipe, and tweaked it some to go even further, we are enjoying our pizza days again!


2 1/2 teaspoons, or 1 package active dry yeast

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 cup hot water (110’F)

2 1/2 cups bread flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt


* Preheat oven 450′ F

* In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in hot water (110’F) until creamy.

* Stir in flour, salt and oil. Mix all ingredients together and form a ball. Let rest for 5 minutes.

* On a flour dusted smooth surface (table or counter), roll out your dough ball. Then, turn into a greased pizza pan, and or a small cookie sheet.

Load with your favourite toppings and bake for 12-15 minutes.


1 dough ball can fit a small cookie sheet for a regular crust, then follow the above directions.

Also, 1 dough ball can be divided to make 2 thin crusts for medium size pizza pans. For thin crust you must pre-cook the crusts for 7-8 minutes before loading your favorite toppings, then finish cooking for 5-7 minutes.
