paper thin crust
« on: October 25, 2008, 02:47:31 PM »
I've been trying to make a crispy paper thin crust like the pizza at Cafe Fiorella in NYC.  Apparently they use no yeast.  Has anyone ever heard of pizza crust without yeast?  It is thin as paper.
Thanks for the help....

I have rolled the 'Pizza Inn' crust recipe from the site so thin you could see light behind it. I have a roller attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer. This recipe uses very little yeast.

When I worked for Pizza Inn in the late 60's our district manager would always crank our sheeter down to paper thin, I guess to save money. We would always set it thicker after he left. You can make a pizza with an amazingly thin crust.

foodgirl,

For a yeast-free cracker style dough recipe you might take a look at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,1311.msg17388.html#msg17388 and related posts.
