Easy Thin-Crust Pizza


A thin crust pizza recipe that is home-oven friendly, but emphasizes authentic italian ingredients & flavor, and a very crispy crust. I like to start the pizza on a hot pan over the stovetop for a reliable crisp, a deviation from the more traditional oven-only cooking method. The goal is to apply enough dry heat to minimize trapped steam while the bottom of the dough cooks and browns; without a pizza stone or a sufficiently hot commercial oven it is otherwise difficult to do this without burning the top of the pizza.



Done correctly, your pizza will have a dry, lightly textured crispy crust with good flavor and spots of color: image
