Basic NY-Style Thin Crust Pizza Dough


New York style thin crust pizzas are usually large, lending themselves to “by the slice” sales, while the long fermentation time sets their flavor profile and aroma apart. This formula can be used for both medium-thick and thin crusts depending on your preference.
