Thin crust pizza crust…

November 10, 2009

After I posted yesterday about our incredibly delicious thin crust pizza orgy on Sunday, a couple of you asked about the recipe.  Ummm…well, this time, we used store-bought pizza dough, the kind that comes in a squishy ball in a plastic bag in the dairy section of the grocery store.  We normally make our own, using one of two recipes we have honed, after trial and error, but we both wanted to watch the Patriots play, so we took a short cut.  However, I think the secret behind the wonderful crust was the roll-out method.  Peter rolled it out as thin as he could, then let it rest for a minute or more, rolled it out again, let it rest again, then rolled it out a third time.  The rest time helps allow the dough to stretch and relax so that it can NOT relax too much after your crust is thin.  Also, don’t let it rise at all.  Use it straight out of its resting state.  Good luck and let me know how it works for you.

    Thanks for this – I will give it a try! The fact that it isn’t an actual recipe makes it easier. We often get the ball of dough from Trader Joe’s, although I’ve never seen it (nor looked for it, now that I think about it) at the grocery store.

    I don’t think we have the squishy bags in our grocery stores either. They have it at TJ’s, but we don’t have one here 😦
