This is a simple recipe for pizza dough. It will make 4 thin pizzas. It takes about 1 hour 15 minutes to make. One of the hardest thing to get right at home is a crispy bottom to your pizza. The top temperature I can get my oven is 230 degrees C, professional pizza ovens are much hotter than this and can cook pizzas in about 5 minutes. For me I need about 12 minutes to get a good crispy base. To help achieve this I use a pizza stone, put it in the oven at least 30 minutes before you are ready to start cooking the pizza and put the oven on as hot as you can.

I have tried lots of different ways to slide my pizza into the oven, without professional results. This maybe down to me having too thin pizzas or too much topping. The way I now make them is to dust a piece of greaseproof paper with semolina and roll the dough out on to it. Top with your chosen toppings and the cook on the pizza stone.
