Whole Wheat Thin Pizza Crust

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
3/4           cup  water
1         tablespoon  vital wheat gluten
1/2      teaspoon  salt
1           teaspoon  sugar
2        tablespoons  olive oil
2               cups  whole wheat flour
2          teaspoons  bread machine yeast

Place all of the ingredients in your machines fully assembled pan in the
order recommended by your machines manufacturer. Place the pan in your
machine. Select the dough cycle and press start. You may need to add some
more flour (1 Tbsp. at a time) if the dough is too wet or more water if
the dough is too dry (1 Tbsp. at a time).

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees for at least 30 minutes. Grease the pizza
pan with olive oil or pan spray. If using a peel and stone, dust the peel
with cornmeal to prevent the pizza from sticking. While the dough is
rising, prepare your toppings and grate your cheese. 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
ccrust, place your toppings on the pizza and bake iimmediately. 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. Place the
pizza on the bottom rack of the oven or directly on the
pizza stone and bake until the crust is golden brown and the cheese has
melted. This should take 10 to 15 minutes.
