This is my go to thin crust pizza dough recipe and my home made sauce that I have been making for several years. I am not going to break down the prices for this, as a cheese pizza is very reasonable, and when you start adding toppings, the cost per person per meal goes up as well. This is great to make when family is visiting as nearly all Thais enjoy pizza.

Instructions
Pizza Dough
  1. About 30 minutes to 1 hour before baking, preheat the oven to 250 degrees C. Yes, you need a hot oven to make a good pizza.
  2. Measure out the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt and dried Italian seasoning/herbs of your choice (if using) and yeast, use your hand or a whisk to combine.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the water. Use your fingers or a wooden spoon to combine everything together. When it comes together into a cohesive ball, turn it out onto the counter along with any extra flour in the bowl that hasn’t yet gotten worked in.
  4. Knead the dough until all the flour is incorporated and the dough is smooth/elastic to the touch, about five minutes. The dough should still feel moist and just slightly tacky. If it’s sticking to your hands and counter top like bubble gum, work in more flour one tablespoon at a time until it’s smooth and silky. Then divide the dough into two parts.
  5. I use 13 inch non stick pizza pans, sprinkle some corn meal around on the pan, the place one ball of dough in the center. Use the heels of your hands and working from the middle gently press the dough outward until it’s about 1/4 of an inch thick or less, while rotating the pan. You can also use a rolling pin for this part.
  6. Spoon ONLY the sauce into the center of each pizza and use the back of a spoon to spread it out to the edges. Put into the preheated over for 5 minutes, then rotate it 180 degrees so it is evenly cooked for another 3 minutes. Remove from oven.
  7. Now add the toppings of your choice, return to oven for another 3-5 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and crispy. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack, repeat with second pizza. Each pizza should cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
Sauce
  1. Mix together the tomato paste, water, and olive oil. Mix well. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste, oregano, basil, and rosemary. Mix well and let stand several hours in refrigerator to let flavors blend. No cooking necessary, just spread on dough.
Basic Cheese and Tomato Pizzas
  1. Shred your Mozzarella Cheese, slice tomatoes thinly, if only using the small plum tomatoes, slice a few more. Chop your fresh basil leaves.
  2. Using two prepared pizza crusts, top each with tomato slices, basil, and cheese. I like to use 1 200 gram package of cheese, shredded per pizza, I like a lot of cheese.
  3. Bake for 3-5 minutes or until edge is brown and crispy, let cool for 5 minutes, and enjoy. Here is a few examples we have cooked here at the house, these are thicker than what they look like, we use generous toppings and 200 grams of cheese per pizza. All the Italian sausage is made from a shortcut here on this site.
  4. Italian sausage, ham, mushrooms, pineapple, lot of cheese.
  5. Italian sausage, mushrooms, chopped ham, onion, lot of cheese.
  6. Italian sausage, shrimp, imitation crab, bacon, mushrooms, yellow bell pepper, lot of cheese.
  7. Italian sausage, mushrooms, onion, red and yellow bell peppers, lot of cheese.
  8. Italian sausage, mushrooms, chopped ham, bacon, black olives, lot of cheese.
  9. This is the everything pizza; Italian sausage, bacon, ham, imitation crab, jumbo prawn, pineapple, mushrooms, black olives, and a load of cheese, about 1 pound.
  10. This is the Cheese Burger Pizza, it is Italian sausage, bacon, mushrooms, and shredded Cheddar cheese.
Recipe Notes

No need for prices here, the basic pizza is Best Value, when you start adding toppings, then the price goes up, and can go up a lot, but is so good, and is a good treat for Thai relatives and neighbors. We normally make very thick pizzas with loads of toppings, cost increases but the servings also increase.
