30 Minute Thin Crust Pizza Dough
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1½ tablespoons cornmeal
  1. Prepare the dough: In a large bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer, combine water, yeast, and sugar. Stir in flour and then salt. Knead until dough comes together. Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover with a clean towel or plastic wrap and let rise 30-40 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 475?F. Divide dough into 2 balls. Sprinkle cornmeal on two pieces of parchment paper. Place each dough ball on parchment paper. Using a floured rolling pin, roll each dough to ¼-inch thick and move parchment paper with dough to a baking sheet. Top with desired toppings. Bake until crust is golden and crispy on the bottom, about 12-13 minutes.
This dough can also be used to make a crispy French bread. Shape into loaves and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Since this dough will make two pies, you can halve the toppings and make two different versions of thin crust pizzas, or turn the second pie into a classic sauce-and-cheese version for the kids.
