Mexican Thin Pizza Crust
After the dough has risen one time, roll it out on a lighly floured or cornmealed surface or hand stretch until a nice circle is formed. It may never be a perfect circle but that is just part of homemade pizza. Dust the dough with flour or cornmeal only as needed to prevent sticking. Lay the dough on your prepared pan or peel. Pull the dough up around the edges of the pan so that a slight lip is formed, and crimp the edges.
For a thin crispy crust, place your toppings on the pizza and bake immediately. For a thicker, chewier crust, allow the dough to rise for 15 to 30 minutes. The longer the rise, the thicker the dough. Place your toppings on. You should place sauce first, followed by cheese, meat, vegetables and seasonings. You should also leave 1/2-inch untopped border around the crust.
