Easy and Delicious Crispy Pizza

No need to let this dough rise. Why not give this thin, light and piping hot pizza a try?

Ingredients: 3 20cm pizza

Bread flour
200 g
Salt
4 g
Olive oil
1 scant tablespoon
Water
105 g
A. Canned Tomato
1
A. Salt
1/2 teaspoon
A. Olive oil
1 teaspoon
A. Oregano・Basil (dry)
1/2 teaspoon each
A. Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon
Toppings of your choice
to taste

Steps

1. In a bowl, combine the bread flour, salt and water and mix round and round with chopsticks.
2. When the dough starts to come together, add the olive oil and knead for a while with your hands.
3. When the dough becomes smooth, it's ready. Let the dough rest for more than 30 minutes. The surface of the dough is still rough at this point but it will become smooth after resting.
4. Make the pizza sauce. Combine the A. ingredients in a pot and cook it down to make it thicker and less liquid. Leave to cool.
5. Divide the dough into thirds and roll out the each dough into a 20cm diameter disc. Spread the sauce on top, and add your favorite toppings. I used corned beef, white bunapi-shimeji mushrooms and green beans here.
6. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake in a preheated 230℃ oven for 10~ 12 minutes. Done.
7. ■How to make crispy pizza ○When preheating the oven, set the temperature 20℃ higher than the baking temperature. ○ Heat the baking tray while the oven preheats too, and things will work much better.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love thin, crispy pizza crusts over thick, doughy American type pizzas. I wanted to make it thin so the ratio of ingredients is for an easy-to-roll-out dough.
