What's your best tried-and-true thin crust pizza dough recipe?

  1. Hey, this is my very first post on the blue side!

    My husband bought a komado grill and we're having fun with lots of different things. Pizzas are a favorite of ours, and I want to experiment with some different doughs to find the very best favorite dough.

    By the way, I'm klone and I love to bake. I even have a ruffly apron I wear. My husband bought me a Kitchenaid mixer for Mother's Day two years ago and it's my favoritest appliance ever!

    WELCOME TO THE BREAK ROOM!
    Feel free to play silly games, and post on the "Good Morning" thread that is dated for each day.. Or just do what feels right to you.

    I had to look up what a Komado grill is.
    I've never thought of grilling pizza, although I've seen it done on TV.

    This may give you a start:

    Mine is a low-carb cauliflower recipe. I love it but I'm sure those who love the bread of pizza crust won't like it.

    There are all kinds of recipes when you google it but they mostly are the same thing.

    Heat oven to 425°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Grate the cauliflower using a box grater until you have 2 cups of cauliflower crumbles. Place in a large bowl and microwave for 7-8 minutes, or until soften. Remove and let cool and then place on a kitchen towel and squeeze the water out. Place back in dried out bowl. Mix in the egg, 1 cup mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, basil or any other combo of spices you might like in the crust and then salt and pepper. Once combined, pat into a 10-inch round on the prepared pizza pan. Spray lightly with non-stick spray and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.

    Top the pizza with the sauce, remaining mozzarella, cherry tomatoes (I used my oven-roasted cherry tomatoes from last summer), garlic, and red pepper flakes. Or any other kind of topping you like. Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, another 10 minutes. Top with basil before serving. Or whatever you personally like.


    Edited to add - I found grated cauliflower in the produce section at Trader Joes . . . .no need to use the box grater and bloody up your knuckles.

    Thank you!
    I'll make it when we get home from New Orleans.
    Some of my cousins and their daughters will like it too, I think. Half of my cousins like to think they are red necks. They think that means smoking and eating junk.

    My best friend, whose family we share meals with pretty much every weekend, is gluten free and was talking about wanting to try a cauliflower crust. I will have to try that.

    Spidey, I like you. I like cauliflower. But I just threw up a bit in my mouth.

    KLONE!!! (yay) Your best bet is to buy a dough from your favorite pizza parlor at first, see how the grill works, and then play with the recipes.
    Then invite us all over once you prefect it. We won't make fun of your apron. Much.

    I've never understood that phrase.

    But no worries, my husband loves cauliflower but doesn't like the pizza crust made with cauliflower. He does like "fake" mashed potatoes made with cauliflower though. We did SouthBeach for awhile and that was one recipe he liked. Of course, lots of butter on top.

    My Dad LOVED mashed rutabagas (yellow turnips) with gravy. We always made them on Thanksgiving or any time we made gravy.
    Regular turnips cook fast, but rutabagas take longer.
    They are good.

    In most grocery stores, you can buy a 1 pound frozen ball of pizza dough (even wheat kind). Roll it out small and you have a thick crust; roll it out big and it's thin crust.

    I like 'white' pizza so I just add stuff but don't use any red sauce (I will use tomatoes).

    It's funny how now I notice things on the internet like pizza crust now. Of course this one if from someone that I met here on AN and is now a FB friend. Not sure it is a thin crust but the short video is interesting.
