Having had recent success with American Style and Pan Pizza, I decided to try one of the recipes for thin crust pizza. I used the Deven's "Pizza Inn" Style Thin & Crispy Pizza Recipe found in the Recipe section. I followed the directions exactly and thought I had done something wrong since a dough ball never really formed, it was just clumps of dough even after 10 minutes of mixing. The other thin recipe said to put the dough in the refrigerator overnight but this one said leave at room temp, so that is what I did. After about 18 hours it had roughly doubled in size. I rolled it out on a lightly floured surface with my rolling pin. It takes quite a bit of effort to get it thin and large enough but about 5 minutes of working did it. I found that as the flour was absorbed by the dough ball it eventually got a little stickier and would hold its shape after rolling instead of sliding back. I still really had to lean into it in order to get it pushed all the way out. I don't have a cutter pan, so I used my deep dish pan and pizza wheel to do basically the same thing. I then docked liberally with a fork and prebaked the crust for 4 minutes (as mentioned in the other thin recipe). I came up with my own sauce recipe that worked out very well. Once I recollect how I did it, I will make a separate post in the sauce area. The top was perfectly done, crust was very good, but the bottom was a little light, no real browning. I think I will try cooking it on the bottom rack next time. It was in at 500 for about 15-16 minutes.
I also used the discarded dough pieces for some pseudo-crazy bread. Not much like it because it was thin and crispy, but with the additions of garlic butter and Parmesan cheese and a pinch of kosher salt, it was a nice appetizer.
