  • Take the raised pizza dough and punch back lightly. Knead again slightly. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
  • Preheat oven to 220C for 10 minutes. Roll one portion into a thin circle for making thin crust pizza. Carefully transfer the rolled base to a pizza plate or baking tray. I directly hand tossed the pizza base on the pizza plate. Prick the base here and there with a fork.
