Thin Crust Pizza Dough Recipe | How to Work With Wet Dough

Recently, I filmed a new video detailing my latest favorite thin crust pizza dough recipe as well as a few good techniques on how to deal with wet dough. I figured instead of talking your ear off about it, I would just show you! Also, I get a lot of questions asking what dough is supposed to look like in certain stages of mixing/prep, so I’ve left LONG sequences of the mixer doing its thing in there so you can check out what the dough looks like as I make it. You can see it really doesn’t look like dough until an hour or so after I started making it. Just takes a little patience and a bit of faith :)

Good luck and enjoy the new video! Hola from Chico, California!
