Yes, it's a long name for the easiest thin crust pizza dough ever. For a thicker crust let the dough rise for 45 minutes or more. This is extremely quick and the dough is really stretchy and easy to work with. Adapted from the Canadian Living Cookbook.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons instant fast rise yeast
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup hot water
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- Pulse flour, yeast, and salt in food processor until blended.
- With motor running, add water and oil. Process for 1 minute, or until a ball forms.
- With floured hands, remove dough and form into a round ball. Place in a greased bowl, turning over to grease all around.
- Let rise for 10 minutes for thin crust.
- Stretch into pizza pan and top as desired.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned.
I made this in my KitchenAid stand mixer using dough hooks instead of in my food processor. I also let the dough rise for an hour and ended up with thick, chewy, tender, delicious pizza crust. Made for 2011 All You Can Cook Buffet.
This was my first time making homeade pizza crust. I was nervous, but this was really pretty easy! I did have a mishap with my blade coming off, and there was a huge mess. Maybe I should have used the dough blade??? Either way, this made a really nice pizza crust! It was very sticky, though, and I might add that flouring my hands did nothing. I had to oil my hands.
Delicious! Easy! Made as written... Used a Pampered Chef 'stone' baking sheet! Kids wanted more - making two next time! Thank you! We sprinkled garlic powder and Italian seasoning ontop of pizza - drizzles of olive oil also... Mm Mm tasty!
