Our dough is much slacker, especially the longer it sits in the fridge, and wetter and we like a thinner crust that you see pictured at Gwen's Nest. The photos of ours below are from before we worked into making it thinner and wetter. Sorry! Maybe one reason ours is thinner is we let the dough sit a lot longer in fridge before using, but we like it like that! Even though it's thin, it's more soft and chewy than crispy. Yum!!!
Our basic dough will make 2 - 15" thin crust pizzas:
Cooking instructions: (details at links at the beginning of post)
450 degree oven - heat with baking stone. Spread the dough on parchment paper and use a pizza peel to slide onto stone. Bake for approx. 10 minutes. Top the pizza and return to oven for about 10 more minutes. Broil briefly if necessary.
We've topped it with ALL KINDS of things: BBQ sauce, brisket (or chicken) and cheddar, sun-dried tomato pesto with mozzarella, cremini mushrooms cooked ahead in butter, olives, sauteed onion and red peppers, pepperoni or homemade Italian sausage....we've used homemade Arugula pesto, Basic pesto and regular tomato paste sauce recipe from Elana's Almond Flour cookbook. It's our favorite dinner to have when company is coming because it's easy to have things ready ahead of time and the right guests like to help out and make the pizza! Add a salad and dessert and there you have it! It's so easy to heat up leftover in the toaster oven briefly and it's almost as good as fresh!
We try to always have a batch in the fridge ready to go. It also helps to save the space for the permanent container! =) One day soon we will try making some bread sticks like we've seen Julia Child make.
