Dough Recipe:
1 pk Fast-rising dry yeast
3 c All-purpose white flour
1 c Hot water (120F-to-130F)
1/2 ts Salt

1/2 c Mozzarella – thinly sliced – or cut into 1-inch cubes
1 c Tomato sauce
1 1/2 lb -Fresh tomatoes – seeded, drained – and roughly chopped
2 Garlic cloves – peeled and minced
1/2 ts Dried oregano
6 -Fresh basil leaves, shredded
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tb Olive oil


(MIXING AND KNEADING: 1 1/2 MINUTES.) Place the yeast
and 1 cup of the flour in the bowl of a food processor and pulse once using the metal knife or the plastic dough blade. With the machine running, pour in the hot water (make certain it’s hot when you use it). As soon as it’s in, turn the machine off; add the salt and remaining 2 cups of flour. Next, pulse until the dough
begins to hold together; then let the machine run continously until a ball of dough forms.

(ASSEMBLY: 5 MINUTES.) Lightly oil the pan with vegetable oil and dust with coarsely ground yellow cornmeal. Press the dough out into an 8-inch circle with your fingertips and then roll or stretch it out into a 15-or-18-inch pizza shell. Fit the shell onto prepared pan. Sprinkle desired toppings over dough, and finish with a drizzling of olive oil. Bake 15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the topping is bubbly. For a well-done crust bake 5 minutes

    I’ve now made this twice. Two suggestions: depending on your preferences, consider increasing the salt in the crust to 2 tbs. and make sure you get the crust thin – to accomplish this, try dividing the dough into two balls and making two pizzas.
