Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 5 teaspoons quick-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1-1/2 to 1-2/3 cups warm water (120° to 130°)

Directions

  1. Place flours, yeast and salt in a food processor; pulse until blended. Add honey. While processing, gradually add water until a ball forms. Continue processing 60 seconds to knead dough.
  2. Turn dough onto floured surface; shape into a ball. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough into quarters. Use immediately or securely wrap and freeze for later use.

Can you freeze Thin Crust Pizza Dough?

Wrap each portion of dough in plastic wrap and place in resealable freezer bags; freeze up to 1 month. To use, thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Proceed as directed.


Test Kitchen tips
  • Although, this dough makes four 12-in. thin pizza crusts, you can split the dough in half to make pizzas with a thicker crust (deep dish).
  • To make pizza: Preheat oven to 450°. Grease a 12-in. pizza pan; sprinkle with cornmeal. On a lightly floured surface, stretch and shape one portion of dough to form a 12-in. crust; transfer to prepared pan. Top as desired. Bake 15-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. If using frozen dough, thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Proceed as directed.
