Bill’s Thin Crust Pizza Dough

(Makes one huge pizza, or 4 individual size)


.25 oz. pkt. active dry yeast

1/4 tsp. granulated sugar

3/4 cup 110 degree water

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (or blend of Semolina, whole wheat, etc)

1/2 tsp. salt


 With a Food Processor:


·        Dissolve yeast and sugar in water in bowl of large Food Processor; allow to rest for 8 minutes.

·        Add flour and salt.

·        Process for 30 secods, adding either flour or water to achieve a ball of dough that is not too sticky, but holds together.


Without a Food Processor:

·        Dissolve yeast and sugar in water; allow to rest for 8 minutes.

·        In a separate bowl, combine flour and salt.

·        Pour yeast mixture over flour mixture and mix well with a heavy spoon.

·        Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes.


Do not let dough rise.  Use immediately to achieve “cracker- like” consistency.



·        For small pizzas, cut ¼ of the dough and flatten until desired thickness with a rolling pin.  Stretch with your hands also.

·        Place dough on a pizza paddle with corn meal sprinkled on paddle, so dough won’t stick.

·        Add cheese, toppings, etc.

·        Spray BBQ grids with plenty of Spray Oil (Pam) so pizza won’t stick. Slide dressed pizza onto BBQ Grill.  Spray edges of pizza with a little more Spray Oil (Pam).  Watch closely and turn in a circular pattern to get desired level of “char.”

·        Or bake in 500-degree oven.
