INSTANT ITALIAN THIN-CRUST PIZZA

that too made from a scratch!, including the base, all ready in 15 minutes, what more can you ask for!, In my previous post about Instant Donuts I mentioned Instant gratification, this is again one of those recipes that gives me exactly the right dose of it and let me tell you I am very pleased with the results this recipe gives a perfect, crisp base and a delicious cheesy taste,but MAKE THIS RECIPE INTO A THIN CRUST BASE ONLY which is what I PREFER not a thick one, it is simply not designed for that and you will be disappointed., so no waiting hours for the dough to rise! Get ready to switch on the oven right now....

bindiya what is the correct temperature to preheat the oven to? mine has a standard setting for 220deg.C
your pizza looks simply scrumptious... can't wait to try out.. please answer my query so i can get started...
love your bolg.. you go girl!!!!

bindiya February 14, 2009 at 9:51 AM  

Vani, I usually preheat at 180 C , but 220 would be fine too, just keep an eye on the pizza while it is baking, rest it is a very easy to work with recipe.

excellent pizza! i made it with whole wheat flour on accident and I guess it came out ok. How can I make the center of the pizza crunchy like the outside?

Is it because the crust wasn't equal thickness everywhere?

Jessica August 16, 2011 at 3:20 PM  

This crust is perfect! I just blogged about it myself, and my own choice of toppings! Good work!
