Thin and crispy pizza base – something that is so simple to make but often gets overlooked.
When it comes to pizza, everyone has their personal preferences. Some like a thin and crispy base, others like a thick base. Some like a stuffed crust, some don’t eat the crust. It is truly an independent choice, and a choice that many are passionate about.
Over here at Nutrition and Cake, we love a thin base pizza. Thin and crispy is our favourite. It is light but you also get to taste the toppings more, and the more toppings the better! This pizza base recipe is large, thin and crispy. It is almost like a tortilla base, to put it into perspective.
You don’t need any fancy equipment, just a rolling pin and something to combine the dough with. Elysia put this recipe together and it has changed Hannah’s life. Hannah is dairy intolerant and would never buy store bought pizza’s or bases. She likes to make food from scratch but never attempted to make her own base before. Until now that is!
We hope you love the pizza base recipe and that you get creative with your toppings! Be sure to tag us in your creations over on Instagram, account @nutritionandcake. Enjoy!
- 100g Wholemeal Strong Brown Flour
- 100g Strong White Flour
- 1tsp Dried Yeast
- 125ml Warm Water
- Pinch or Sea Salt
Place both flours into a mixing bowl, then add in your yeast and then warm water.
Combine together with a wooden spoon, until it is all combined and can form into a large ball.
Once combined, place onto a floured surface and knead for approx. 1 minute.
Cut into two balls and roll each of them out until large and thin.
Place onto your baking tray and top with your toppings!
Cook in the oven for approximately 10-12 minutes.
Your water must be warm before adding to the yeast and flour mix. We mix cold water with boiled water to make it warm and then place into the bowl.
The flours used are bread or pizza dough flours specific.
