Thin crust pizza

Another pizza dough recipe.

Preheat to 450 or better the oven with a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet or cast iron griddle on the rack.

In a mixing bowl add 2 teaspoons of yeast, (the yeast I use is the fast rise style,) sugar, a tablespoon or two, 3 cups white flour, ( or just short of 3 cups and a heaping tablespoon of  dried , milled (ground) spent grains from brewing beer.)

Mix and add about a cup and one half  hot tap water (130 degrees Fahrenheit). Melted butter if desired about 2 tablespoons.

Mix with a heavy spoon and if needed add incrementally more flour or liquid as required to make a slightly wetter dough than needed.

Mix till dough comes together and turn out on counter and divide. Work dough till pliable and there is some elasticity.

Spread the dough with your hands on a sheet of parchment paper large enough as the baking sheet or pizza stone on the oven.



Drain a can of whole peeled tomato and season with herbs, garlic etc.



Process the tomatoes

Spread the sauce over the dough.

Add some grated cheese.


IMG_5121Keeping this recipe basic that’s all on this pizza.

Slide the pizza and parchment onto a inverted baking sheet or cutting board and now slide into the oven onto the baking sheet in the oven


At this point I didn’t set a timer, at about 500 degrees, i just watched, not recommended to leave unattended the possibility of the parchment combustion exist. Rotate the pizza if desired and cook as crisp as you like. When completed , place on a rack to cool, if placed on a flat surface, the pie may become soggy underneath.




I didn’t slice the pizza, it’s so thin just rip off a piece, rustic style.

Beer here recommended.


With the remainder of the dough, I made one just with grated cheese pressed into the top. Same process baking.

IMG_5131Not a big fan of thin crust pizza, but good for a change.

Also can be used to serve with a meal in place of bread.
