Start with this easy dough recipe that comes together quickly in a food processor. Once your dough is ready, press and roll it out for thincrust pizza. For ease, be sure to transfer the dough rounds to your peel before you add the toppings. This way you don’t have to lift the doughs once you top them. Since the pizzas are small, two fit on the peel at a time, which means they’ll be delivered to your table together.
Test Kitchen Tip
After you form the dough balls, they can be covered and refrigerated for a day. Just punch them down again when you’re ready to roll them out.
Pulse flour and salt in a food processor to combine. With the machine running, pour in the yeast mixture and process until dough forms a ball around the blade.
Punch dough down and divide into four pieces; shape into balls (pull down sides, tuck under, and pinch dough closed on bottom). Roll each ball under your palm until smooth, about 1 minute.
Press each dough ball out on a lightly floured surface. Turn dough, pressing on its center, then roll each into a 7- to 8-inch circle. Transfer two rolled dough rounds to a pizza peel generously dusted with cornmeal; brush each with 1 tsp. oil, then add toppings.
Process the dough until a ball forms around the blade. If it’s sticky, add more flour when kneading.
Knead the dough 1–2 minutes until it’s soft, smooth, and slowly springs back when pressed.
To remove air bubbles after shaping dough balls, roll under your palm about 1 minute.
