Tips to Make Thin Crust Pizza
First you need to get an envelope of dry yeast. Then mix the yeast with Â¼ teaspoon sugar and Â¾ cup of tepid water. Stir the mixture well and keep it for 10 minutes. This will help the yeast to foam.
Take a large bowl and to this add one and three fourth cups of plain flour and care should be taken to use unbleached plain flour. Then mix the flour well with half teaspoon of salt. Or you can sieve the salt and flour mixture for five or six times to get a fine mixture. Then add the yeast mixed water to this flour mixture and knead well. If the dough is sticky while kneading then you can add flour to your finger tips and then knead. You can also do this in a food processor and in food processor it takes about 30 seconds. Make a soft and smooth ball out of this flour.
Now you have to roll out this flour ball with your hand till you get a twelve inch base. While rolling out care should be taken to roll out the dough evenly. Then take a pizza pan and grease the pan with some oil. Place the rolled out pizza base on this pan and use a fork to prick the surface of the pizza base. This aids in removing the air bubbles.
