Pizza dough with paper no 1

You want to watch a movie with friends, feel again 16 when you did a sleepover and had takeaway pizza? Now we're old, you have us for the recipes and you know how to turn on a effing oven. Congrats, you're a grown-up!
I tested 2 pizza doughs and both where good, but there where 3 pizzas involved. All the same toppings, but the dough was mostly (2 out of 3) paperish thanks to parchement paper that suck quite literaly( how could they name it parchement paper when there is no parchement involved? Dang).

So this is a recipe for dough nr 1 with paper for me, so you don't make the same mistake and have a great thin cripsy pizza. Really thin, because this dough spreads evenly and thinly however streatched you'd want it. No throwing up in the air required. Just that the dough didn't rise up as much as I expected, but oh well, life isn't always perfect, right? What was that saying? Nobody's perfect, but me? :)
Oh, important. Close all your windows now. Take off all rings and bracelets and watches. Turn up your sleaves or wear a t-shirt with short sleaves.Otherwise you'll be quite mad that you've got dough everywhere:)
Ok, let's rip this dough now.

Type of dish: main, dough
Cost: medium
Difficulty: easy
Serves: 6
Time: 70-80  min minimum
Preparation time: 25 min
Rising/resting time : 30min
Baking time: 15-20 min
Oven temp: 195-200C

You'll need:
A knife, a large mixing bowl, small bowl, a cup, a teaspoon, tablespoon, a large rolling board or use your table ( for kneading), 2 clean dishlothes,

  • 1 packet dry yeast
  • 2 cups regular flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
In the small bowl, pour in the water and dry yeast. Set aside in a warm place so it grows a bit, at least get's creamy like. This take around 10 min. You can make the tomato sauce now.
In the large bowl, put the all the rest of the ingredients, mix them a bit with a spoon.
When 10mins is up, pur in the yeast mixture in the large bowl, mix what you can with the spoon, then start kneading. If you can't knead, use a man. Or somebody stronger than you. Or a machine that makes/mixes bread, but just to get the dough roughed up so you can take it to the next level by taking it out on the dancefloor, err sorry, table, and start kneading. It's an irritating move, but somebody has to do it. Unfortunaly, it's you. And me. You can take some stress out on the dough, if it helps you. Just punch from the side, not in the middle of the dough or you'll be crying. Tested. So knead untill you have this nice clean dough, without any visible signs of using plain flour or yeast. Should be firm to the touch and really smooth. You'll want to stroke it because it's so nice. Now form into a ball, place in the mixing bowl with a bit of flour underneath and cover with the cloth. Put it in a warm place, and leave it for at least 30 min to rise/rest.
After this time take out the dough again and punch/knead it some more. Now it's ready for thinning out and shaping a pizza. Or shape it and freeze for when you need it.

This recipe provides for 1 large thin pizza.
