I tend to forget how easy it is to make pizza. Shortly after El Hub and I got married and we were both in grad school, I would make pizza dough over the weekend, separate them into balls and freeze them. During the week, I would thaw a ball the night before, and we would have some yummy pizza topped with cheese and pepperoni for dinner that night.
Well, since then I want to say that our tastes have evolved. I mean, if you put a pepperoni pizza in front of me, I would inhale it in a second. But it is more exotic when you say, “I had a prosciutto pizza for dinner”, isn’t it?
I am a huge fan of thin crust pizza; I love the crispiness and the simplicity of it. However, I’ve had a bit of a tough time coming up with a good recipe for such type of crust. I realized there was no need to reinvent the wheel when I came across this thin crust pizza recipe from Country Living.
Making the dough is very simple. What is a bit time consuming is the fact that you have to wait for the dough to double – an hour. Upon doubling, you have to punch the dough down and let it rise for an extra 30 minutes. But let me tell ya, if you’d had a stressful day, punching this dough is a magical reliever.
