Thin Crispy Pizza Bases

Lisa Mac

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone

I have been in Brisbane for just over 3 months now and have been searching high and low for plain thin pizza bases with no topping. In South Africa I used to buy the packs of 3 that Woolies sold. I used to add my own toppings and they would bake nice and crispy underneath.

I have tried the pizza bases from Woolworths, Coles and Aldi (including the "Bazaar" brand which looked thinner than most) but have found them too soft, "bready" and thick for our taste. I actually find them really filling, more like pita breads.

Can anyone tell me if they have found thin, crispy pizza bases. Then again, maybe thin pizza bases are just not popular over here?

With thanks

Dear LisMac

Why not make your own?

I also dont like thick pizza bases, so I just make my own , and I put a terracotta tile into my oven and heat that up , then bake my pizza on my tile.

I then get a "quasi wood fired pizza,". thin and nice and crispy.

If you need a recipe shout.....( you can also prove it in a micro wave if you are in a hurry)

Thanks for the recipe Enrica. My boys LOVE pizza and I also buy those thin bases and they make their own. Bit more effort involved, but at least we'll get what they like when we get to Aus!
