Thin crust pizza dough

From Margherita Pizza

Margherita Pizza


(for two thin crust pizzas)

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • cornmeal for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 400 F.

In the bowl of a stand-up mixer with a dough hook attachment, combine the warm water and yeast. Allow to become frothy, about 7-8 minutes. Add olive oil, salt, and all of the flour at once and set mixer on lowest setting. Keep an eye on it and once it forms a dough ball, remove it from the mixer, adding more flour in little bits if necessary. On a floured surface, split the dough ball into two and knead each 2-3 times. Let the balls rest for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, brush olive oil onto pizza pans and sprinkle cornmeal on pans. Roll the dough balls out into the shape of the pans and place on pans. Brush a little more olive oil on top and bake in oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly and top with your choice of toppings!
