1 8oz can tomato sauce

1/4 tsp dry oregano

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/8 tsp onion powder

1/8 tsp salt

1 clove garlic, minced

2 1/4 tsp SAF instant yeast

1/2 tsp sugar

1 1/2 cups warm water

1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp olive oil

3 1/2 cups flour (approximately)

3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Optional: pepperoni, sausage, canadian bacon, peppers, olives, mushrooms, pineapple, bacon, etc.


Sauce1. Heat all ingredients in a saucepan or in the microwave. (Or you can make it an hour ahead of time and let it sit to achieve similar results.)

Crust1. Mix yeast, sugar, and water in a large bowl and let sit 10 minutes.

2. Add salt, olive oil, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead a few times just till smooth.

To Bake1. Preheat oven to 475 °. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Roll or press each piece of dough into pans that have been greased. I like to sprinkle the pans with cornmeal, but this is totally optional.

2. Poke holes in crust with a fork. Bake for about 5 minutes.

3. Remove pizza crusts from oven. Spread with sauce and toppings and bake at 475° for about 10 more minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.
