All pizza is good pizza! In the word of the pizza lord, can I get an amen? Furthermore, this crispy thin crust pizza dough recipe will bless you.

Struggling To Make Pizza Dough

I love pizza. In fact, pizza is one of my top five favorite foods of all time.

Furthermore, pizza is not number five, four, three, or two. So, it is pretty self-explanatory where pizza ranks among my top five favorite foods.

Unfortunately, you can imagine the despair I felt during the time that I was horrible at creating pizza dough.

Back then, I wish I had an easy pizza dough recipe because making that dough was not easy.

You have to get the technique down. Also, this is true for making the crispy thin crust pizza dough recipe.

I still remember the pain I use to go through making pizza dough.

Every time I tried to make the pizza dough, it would not come out to be a round like it suppose to.

Moreover, most of the dough would get stuck to my hand to the point that I felt like I was wasting food, time, and energy.

Knowing what I know now, I can also say that it did not help to be impatient, but when you are hungry, impatiences come with the territory.

Fortunately, after numerous attempts, I finally got the recipe down to a science.

Making The Best Pizza Dough Ever

After I made my first decent pizza dough recipe, I want to continue to improve my pizza dough-making abilities.

This is what later led me to create the crispy thin crust pizza dough recipe.

I wanted to make a pizza dough that could rival the top-tier pizzerias across the globe. A dough that would be perfect for a fire brick oven.

On the contrary, if you do not own a fire brick oven, this crispy thin crust pizza dough recipe is still incredible.

How To Get Crispy Pizza Crust

The best way to get a crispy pizza crust is to cook the crust in a fire brick oven. Unfortunately, most people do not have that, and that is okay.

Most people do have an oven, so we will work with that.

For the best results, you will need a cast iron skillet.

Preheat the oven to the highest temperature possible. More than likely, this will be at 550 degrees. This will get the pizza that crispy texture.

Remember that the oven is at an extremely high temperature, so you will only need your pizza in there for a few minutes.

Why Is My Pizza Crust Not Crispy?

Now, you may be wondering, “why my pizza does not come out crispy?” In the paragraph above, I gave a tip on how to make your dough crispy.

Of course, a crispy dough is why I can make the crispy thin crust pizza dough recipe.

Here are some more tips that may explain why your dough is not crispy.

To get that pizza dough to be crispy, enough water needs to evaporate in the oven.

Baking time and temperature play a vital role, which is why I mentioned earlier that you need to have the oven at the highest temperature.

Also, the type of dough and toppings you use is just as important.

Be mindful that the more toppings you have on a pizza, the greater the chances that the pizza may come out soggy.

What Kind Of Flour Makes The Best Dough?

As somebody who has been on multiple diets, let me be transparent with you. Stick with the white flour that you are used to.

Unless you are into eating different types of flour. in that case, experiment as much as you like.

Almond flour, coconut flour, wheat flour, and any other flour you can think of maybe cool to eat, but in my humble opinion, it will not compare to white flour.

Also, I say that with all due respect.

The best pizza will not be found in dieting, however, if you do not mind eating a pizza without the dough, then I got a recipe that will be excellent for you and all your needs!

Today, you can try this keto-friendly pizza recipe.

Why Does Homemade Pizza Taste Different?

Well, it is time to speak some truth into this pizza universe. Homemade pizza is made from scratch, while a franchise pizza restaurant is using store-bought dough and sauce.

By the way, the toppings are not fresh either and some of them are not using active dry yeast.

Furthermore, this kind of makes me sound like a hater, which I am not. No disrespect to the well-known pizza franchises.

Those pizza restaurants rely on serving a huge quantity of people at once, therefore they have to sacrifice quality in order to please as many people as they can.

We, on the other hand, do not have that issue, so our focus should be on quality.
