I recently changed up my pizza dough recipe and the results were extra thin and crispy. I suggest you try it for yourself!

Extra Thin and Crispy Pizza DoughExtra Thin and Crispy Pizza Dough -


  • 1 cup warm water (microwave room temp water for 30 seconds)
  • 2 ½ teaspoons of yeast
  • 3 cups of bread flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


Let water and yeast sit in a mixing bowl for about 30 seconds. Add sugar and salt and mix. Add ½ cup of flour at a time and continue to knead by hand or with a mixer until dough forms. Let it rise in a greased bowl for 24 to 48 hours (not exceeding 48 hours, as sugar will turn to alcohol). Spread onto a greased pizza pan and add desired sauce, plus toppings. Bake at 500°F for 15 minutes or until crispy.
