This is a great recipe to make pizza dough. The method below produces a thin, crispy crust.


  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 cups AP (all purpose) Flour
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp saltpizza dough


Place dry ingredients in a food processor with the dough blade, pusle a few times to distribute the flour, salt and yeast.

While on add the oil through the feed tube, and slowly add the cold (ice) water.

As the dough ball forms let continue for about 30 seconds. This process will tenderize the dough and replaces the kneeding process.

Let rise for about 2 hours.

After your dough has risen begin to stretch it out carefully with olive oil. Use your oiled palms and form a circle, slowly stetching out the dough each time you move across it. Leave a little dough on the edge to form a crust.

Preheat oven 500 degrees F

Place on a pizza stone and let cook for around 12 minutes.


Do not place too much sauce on the dough and leave enough room along the edges. We like homemade pesto, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.

This would be a great dough to make pizza sticks as well as calzones.
