Homemade Italian Thin-crust pizza with Doppio Zero Flour (00 flour)

Doppio Zero Flour (I used here and also recommend here)

Arugula and avocado 
The name Doppio Zero flour (00 flour) refer to specifically Italian milled flour. 00 indicates the most finely ground flour. Compared to all-purpose, you need reduce liquid amount. It produces very yummy pizza dough with chewy thin-crust & puffy rim!

You can choose a long fermentation in the fridge over night or a fast one with bread machine (or in a warm place). I feel this dough is very forgiving!

Ingredients (3 * 12" pizza):

3 cup 4 tbsp 00 flour or bread flour or all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (more for brushing)
1 tsp yeast
1 tbsp honey
1 1/4 cup warm water (100-110F) (for all-purpose flour consider add 1 extra tbsp water)


  1. In a small bowl, add the warm water and sprinkle the yeast. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the olive oil and honey to #1, mix and rest another 5 minute.
  3. Use a stand mixer / bread machine / or by hand, combine flour / salt and #2. Here you have two choices. You can get a smooth and elastic dough by hand or with a mixer then leave it in the fridge overnight for a long fermentation. Or, leave it in a warm place for 30 minutes for a short fermentation. I used a bread machine (pizza dough function which normal has 45 minutes) and let it work for 30 minutes. 
  4. Transfer the dough to a well floured space. The dough should be very soft!
  5. Divided the dough in 3 portions. 
  6. Pre-heat oven to 500F.
  7. Dust pizza pan with corn flour.
  8. Shape the dough on the pizza pan and brush the top with extra virgin olive oil. Use a fork to pork some holes. 
  9. Add toppings
  10. Bake for 11-12 minutes.

  1. All meat for toppings should be fully cooked. 
  2. If you like mushroom, remember to stir fry it to remove some water. I also like to add some truffle oil / butter (here) with mushroom.
  3. If you like cherry tomato, I suggest bake them at 425F for 5 minutes then use. 
  4. When shape the dough, brush olive oil then shape it round
