Tried my first thin crust pizzas Friday night and was fairly pleased with the results. But I have a question - do you guys pre bake just the crust for any length of time and then put your toppings on? I only did them at around 500 (raised indirect with stone placed on the swing rack) and pre baked just the crust for around 5 minutes. Put the toppings on and finished for about another 5 minutes. I am just using bread flour but will be ordering some Caputo "00" flour as i can't find anyplace around here that sells it. Also, using 6 in 1 crushed tomatos as my sauce base. I just wasn't getting the big bubbles on the outside rim of my crust like I have seen some of you guys post. Not sure if it was the flour, how I did it, etc... I actually flipped the crust after the prebake then put my toppings on the side that was on the stone for the first 5 minutes. Was just nervous it wasn't going to get all the way done without burning. Probably not how it is supposed to be done so I am looking for your temp and timing.
Just curious if you pre bake and if so, at what temp and for how long? I think I will give them another shot tomorrow night. Thanks guys.
