- Knead flour, water, salt, and yeast with a dough hook on low speed for several minutes until it forms a ball.
- Then knead on medium speed several more minutes until white and silky.

- Punch down dough and divide into four pieces.
- Roll each piece into a tight ball, dust with flour, cover and let rest for at least an hour.

- Transfer to baking stone with a rimless cookie sheet and bake about 8-10 minutes.
NotesI recently discovered Italian style Tipo 00 flour at my local gourmet grocery store. I'd always heard it was the secret to thin crust pizza. For years I was using regular all purpose flour and never was able to make a truly "thin" thin crust. Now all that has changed!
