Crusty Base Pizza

This dough gives us 4 pizza bases (dinner plate size) as we like our pizza thin and crusty. The beauty of making your own pizza is that you can have whatever topping strikes your fancy.

After eating this I will never eat supermarket frozen pizza (e.g. McCain’s) again. Pizza Hut crispy based pizza is the only commercial variety that comes close to being as good.

Hi Sinner! Instead of a bread pan, can I dump the ingredients in the mixer using a dough hook ?

Jan,
Yes you can use a dough hook or hand knead.
Might pay to keep an eye on the water required. You might need more or less.

It was great making our own pizzas with our toppings ! The dough is not so soft as I thought so I added a bit more water to make it stretchy. Hot & crispy ! Yummy !

Jan,
Nothing like eating your own pizza straight off the oven. Glad it turned out well.

Thanks for the feedback :)
