Homemade Thin-Crust Pizza Dough
- ¾ c. lukewarm water
- 1 tsp. instant yeast
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 2 c. all-purpose flour plus more for kneading
- 1 tsp. salt
- Pour the water into a medium bowl. Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the water and let stand until the yeast is dissolved and foamy, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Add the flour and salt. Mix with a stiff spatula or wooden spoon until floury, shaggy dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a work surface and knead until it forms a smooth, slightly tacky ball that springs back when you poke it, 5 to 8 minutes. If the dough sticks to your hands like bubblegum, add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it’s easier to work with; avoid adding too much flour if possible.
- Cover the dough with the upside-down bowl or a clean kitchen towel and let sit while you prepare the pizza toppings, about 10 minutes.
