How to Make Crispy Homemade Pizza Crust
The dough itself is rather dry and tough. This is normal for this particular crust. It helps to knead it and gain some elasticity after you remove it from the mixer.
Separate the dough into two equal balls.
You can roll out your dough by placing it on a lightly floured surface, or by placing it between two pieces of parchment paper. You want your dough to be 1/4″ thick.
I like imperfect jagged edges for my dough instead of a perfect circle or square pizza.
At this point, you will want to pierce your dough all over with a fork or dough docker, but do not go all the way through your dough.
Place the dough in the oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for 4 minutes to get your crust a little crunchy before placing your toppings.
Once the crust has baked for 4 minutes you will add your pizza sauce, pizza toppings like pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, or what ever your heart desires. Follow that with a topping of cheese – shredded mozzarella and cheddar are my go-to’s. That’s what is placed on my pizza below.
