Pizza (Thin Crust)

During the FHA I as given some mozarella cheese balls from Zott.  We actually open up a pack and ate it on the spot and it tasted delicious!  Really addictive!

To mark the end of the mid year exam, I prepared my kids' favourite to celebrate all the hard work put into it.

Most of the time, I prepare thick crust pizza and wanted to give change to it.  So this time, I opted for a Thin Crust Pizza.

Findings: I should have bake the pizza on the lowest rack and then shift up to brown out the cheese.

The crust is crispy to the recipe claimed.  I think it will be even better if I baked it on a pizza stone.  That way, even the inner areas will be crisp too.

What you need:

170g lukewarm water
½ tsp instant yeast
284g plain flour
½ salt


Preheat oven to 230 deg C.  Prepare 2 X 12" pizza tray.

Add yeast and a pinch of sugar to water.  Stir to combine.  Set aside to foam up.

In a mixing bowl, add flour and make a well.

Add salt to the side.

Pour in the yeast mixture and knead on low speed to form a rough dough.  Increase speed and knead until dough is smooth and elastic.  (approx 5 mins).

Remove and divide dough into 2.

Form into a ball.

Dust the counter top with some flour.  Roll the dough into a round approx ¼" thick, 

Bake for about 5 mins and then rotate and bake for another 3 mins.   Remove.

Spread your favourite pizza sauce and add your favourite toppings.

Bake for another 10 mins on the lowest rack and bake another 5 mins on the highest rack until edge and cheese are golden brown.
