Begin to knead and work with the dough until you get it into the shape and thickness you want for your pizza crust. I use my finger tips a lot for this process. Know that when you bake the pizza the crust will rise. For this recipe you will want a thinner crust. Once you get the shape and thickness of the crust all worked out, place a thin layer of sauce on it.
