Crispy Crust Pizza

********************

Next was our pizza dinner.  This time, I chose a Crispy crust pizza.  The crust is indeed crispy but it is only on the rim.  I do not know whether it is because of the toppings that makes the inner crust soggy. 


Overall, family enjoyed this and there wasn't any negative feedback but for self improvement, I seriously think I should sign up for a pizza class.  Somehow, I just could not get it to shape into a nice round like those we ate outside.

If you have a recipe that allows me to be able to shape the dough into a nice round, if you don’t mind, do share with me please.  Thank you.

Crispy Crust Pizza

What you need:

15g yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 cup warm water
458g plain flour
1 tsp salt

Method:

Preheat oven to 250 deg C.

Dissolve yeast and sugar with warm water.  Let the yeast sits in the water till it is foamy.

Mix flour and salt together.  Create a well in the centre.

Pour in the yeast mixture and slowly bring in the flour.

Knead for about 2 mins.  If the texture is wet, add a 1 tbsp of flour.

Rest dough till it double in volume.

Punch down and divide into 4 portions.

Rest for another 10 mins covered.

Shape dough into round (approx 12")

Bake for 4 mins, remove and add toppings.  Return to bake for another 6-8 mins.

Note: The sequence to the topping should be: herbs, pepperoni, cheese and then pizza sauce.  (I topped another topping of cheese after the pizza sauce)

  1. Try putting a flat tray to be preheat so when you put in the pizza it will sit at the bottom of the pizza tray. or use a pizza stone.
