This is a thin pizza that tastes great, isn't hard to make, and leaves a relatively small mess behind.

These instructions make two pizzas, which together serve 4-5 people.

It takes about an hour of work altogether, plus another hour of waiting.

Step 1: Preparation

I usually forget this step. Fortunately I can ride my bicycle to the supermarket when the dough is rising.

For the dough you'll need:

1. 3 cups of flour
2. 3 tablespoons of olive oil
3. 2 tablespoons of honey
4. 1 tablespoon of dry yeast (the type you can freeze) - or any other if you know how to use it
5. 1 teaspoon of salt (I always forget this)

For the sauce you'll need:

1. 3-4 tomatos
2. 1/3 cup of olive oil
3. 1/3 cup of freshly chopped oregano or half as much dry oregano
4. 2-3 tablespoons of tomato concentrate
6. 2-3 cloves of garlic
7. 1-2 teaspoons of basil
5. Salt & pepper to taste

For the toppings you'll need:

1. Cheese - I like mixing mozzarella and parmesan
2. Toppings - anything! Unfortunately today I'm making some for my 7 year old sister, who refuses to eat anything "interesting".

Equipment:

1. 2-3 Bowls
2. Rolling pin
3. Magimix/blender
4. Spoons and a knife
5. Oven and related quipment
6. Baking paper
I always disliked this part so I have not made piazza since I was a kid, but yesterday I made the dough in a bread machine and it is quick and easy and hardly any mesh.Thank You for your recipe I will have to try it .

not bad, but its important to let any yeast dough rise twice for about and hour otherwise you get the runs, bad.
your comment surprises me- I have passed on the second rise many times and never gotten sick. I wonder if there is some other factor that you have not considered?

Nice pizza! Tomatoes are stupid easy to peel if you cut a small x in the end opposite the stem, then dip for 30 seconds in boiling water (use a slotted spoon). Let cool for a minute and the skin slips right off.

Yea, your right about the stupid easy pealing part, but after that they are as slippery as baseballs coated in butter when you trying to deseed them!

This pizza kicks ass! I made this on a Friday night for my sister, her boyfriend and myself and we really enjoyed it. Works great with tofu as well! Check out my pizzas! (Bottom one is tofu one)

Youre using Bread Flour right?
nothingmuch (author)  Nesagwa8 years ago
Yes, plain old white flour
Bread Flour and All Purpose isnt the same thing.
nothingmuch (author)  Nesagwa8 years ago
Oh... I didn't know that. Anyway, the thing I'm using is white flour that is not self rising or anything. I guess it's all purpose then.
AP works, but try out Bread Flour for Bread Machines. It will give you a firmer crust that is a little chewier (like french bread or resteraunt crust) instead of a more bendable crust.

The pancake project (http://www.instructables.com/ex/i/A9A1D5EA09F31029BC4A001143E7E506/) inspired me to actually get off my arse and do this. Thanks!
Hey nice instructable, much more thorough than mine. A bit more complex than my pancakes though. When I cook pizza's I do it outside in a brick oven. I pre-cook the bases before adding toppings. The trick is to have the oven so hot that the whole thing is cooked within about 45 seconds. It takes a couple of hours to get the fire hot enough. I put the pizza directly on a large floor tile propped up on a couple of bricks. Unglazed would probably be better though.

If you built that oven yourself, maybe write an instructables project about it? ;-)

This is a pretty good guide for making a quick pizza from absolute scratch with out too much work. Heh, funny story about wax paper. Wax and parchment paper are NOT the same thing :D You can also put an unglazed quary stone in the oven to get a crisper crust (according to Good Eats episode Flat is Beautiful, its also a good visual guide for people reading this guide).

Yeah, an oven stone is on my shopping list =)
