Start Smart Pizza Crust
A pizza is only as good as the foundation on which it’s built. This Simple Truth crust recipe makes enough for two 12-inch thin-crust pizzas or two 10-inch pies with thicker crust. Make them both now, or freeze one for later.
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon Simple Truth Organic Blue Agave Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Simple Truth Organic Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Simple Truth Organic Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  1. Dissolve the yeast in warm water.
  2. Add to food processor and combine remaining ingredients. Pulse until a ball starts to form.
  3. Remove dough from the processor and dust lightly with flour. Place in a lightly floured bowl and cover with a damp cloth.
  4. Let rise until double in size, about 45 minutes.
  5. Punch down dough. Divide dough into 2 separate balls.
  6. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat to 475° F.
  7. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out each ball of dough on a separate sheet of parchment paper until it is about 10” in diameter.
  8. Let rest 5 minutes while you roll out the second pizza base.
  9. Using a flat tray or cookie sheet without edges, transfer the first base with parchment directly onto the upper-middle rack.
  10. Bake 6 minutes.
  11. Carefully remove the crust from the oven using the tray.
  12. Top the crust as desired and finish in the oven for 8–10 minutes or until golden brown.
  13. Slice and enjoy.
