How to make basic pizza base

  1. To make pizza base at home, roll a portion into a 175 mm. (7”) diameter circle with the help of plain flour.

  2. Prick the circle evenly using a fork so that it doesn’t puff up.
  3. Similarly, roll and prick out the remaining 2 circles and place all the 3 homemade pizza base on a baking tray. If you do not have an oven, then refer this recipe to make basic pizza base without oven.

This was an excellent thin crust base my family loved the pizza. I wanted to ask for a thick crust what do i need to do, because the proportions in this after rolling are apt for a thin crust base.
