Make an Authentic Italian Thin Pizza Crust Recipe

Whether you have wanted to learn to make your own pizza for a while or if you have been a pizza lover your entire life and want to make your own dough for your pizza, you can learn to make your very own thin pizza crust to get the most of the added ingredients you are using as well.

Making your own thin pizza dough and crust does not require much time (other than allowing the dough to rise) and can be done using your own oven, not requiring a bread maker to complete the task. This pizza dough recipe does not cost much to make (which especially works well for larger households or when preserving leftovers for future meals) and is great when you do not have an extensive array of ingredient options on hand.

Having a recipe on hand for your very own thin pizza allows you to whip up a quick dinner for visitors and guests or a quick meal for your family during the week if you are pressed for time or limited on ingredients (as long as you have prepared dough!)

How to Make Your Very Own Thin Pizza Crust
Summary: Pizza is of course traditionally Italian, so why not take the authenticity all the way, using not only Italian toppings but also a traditionally thin and crispy Italian-style crust.
Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 2
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 6 tbsp. warm water
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 ¾ cups bread flour
  1. Add and mix the yeast, oil, and sugar into a bowl together.
  2. Add all of your ingredients into a food processor and mix (until the mixture begins to take the shape of small crumbs).
  3. Grab the crumb mixture and begin meshing it together, forming a ball of dough that is "stuck" together. Press firmly to ensure the ball is formed and solid. Place the ball of dough into a bowl and cover it. Allow the dough to rise for 24 hours in a refrigerator.
  4. Roll the dough onto a lightly-floured surface to create a very thin pizza dough after the dough has risen. Pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Poke holes into the dough with a fork all over the surface (not entirely through the dough).
  6. Place your dough onto a pan and bake for about 4 minutes in your oven (at 500 degrees Fahrenheit), or until the pizza is just turning golden brown.
  7. Remove the pizza from the oven and keep on the pan. Add your toppings and sauce and return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until the edges of the pizza are golden brown and when your cheese has also melted on the pizza.
  8. Some options for an original Italian-style "Pizza Margherita" on thin pizza dough includes using fresh basil leaves along with fresh mozzarella, topped with your own homemade pizza sauce made from tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano as well.
