Pre fired pizza dough

I gave the pizza dough a quick bake before I laid on the toppings to get a crisper crust. Seemed to work. Definitely crunchy. The dough was made without oil to encouage a cracker like crust. I'm making my own dough from scratch. Still needs some tweeking to get where I want it. Any advice for a cracker like crust from pizza experts out there in egg land? My setup is inverted platesetter, grid, perforated pizza pan on grid. Dome temp 475.

    Clay Q,
    You could add in a pizza stone to cook the pizza on. That will aid tremendously in getting a crispier crust.

    Clay Q,[p]Definitely use a stone. Put the stone on, get the Egg up to 550 [not higher], and leave it there for a half hour before slapping the dough onto the stone and closing the lid. Five minutes later, it's done, just like a wood fired pizza oven. And you can do several pizzas in a row with this method.
