Recipe

New York Style Thin Crust Pizza

  • Yield: 2 (12-inch) pizzas, serving 4 to 6

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe basic pizza dough
  • Cornmeal, for dusting
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups your favorite tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1-pound mozzarella, sliced 1/4-inch thick

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. If you have one, place a pizza stone on the bottom rack of the oven.
  • Divide the dough in half and roll into a 12-inch circle, about 1/2-inch thick.
  • Dust pizza peel or baking sheet with cornmeal. Place rolled out dough on peel. Brush pizza dough with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Spread 1 cup tomato sauce evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border along the edges. Sprinkle 1/4 cup basil leaves on top of sauce and then top with 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano. Finally, top with 1/2-pound mozzarella slices. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and the edges are golden brown. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 2 pizzas.
