Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 - 4

    cups flour

  • 1

    tsp. sugar

  • 2 1/4

    tsp. instant dry yeast (or one packet)

  • 2

    tsp. salt

  • 1 1/2

    cups luke-warm water

  • 2

    Tbsp. olive oil (other oil will work as well)

  • additional flour for rolling out the dough

  • Sauce:

  • 1

    (29 oz) can tomato sauce

  • 2

    tsp. jarred minced garlic or 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 2

    tsp. dried oregano

  • 2

    tsp. dried basil

  • 1

    Tbsp. sugar

Directions

Combine the dry ingredients, starting with 3 1/2 cups of flour in a large bowl or standing mixer. Add the water and oil, and mix until the dough forms into a ball. Add additional flour as needed until the dough just starts to no longer stick to the sides of the bowl. Knead until it forms a firm ball. Cover and let rise until doubled (45 min - 1 hour). Punch the dough down and divide into two equal portions. (I put one portion in a zip-lock bag and freeze it for later use.) Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to desired thickness (between 1/2 and 1/4 inch thick). Let rest 10 minutes. Top as desired and bake for 18-22 minutes. Sauce Directions: Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over MED-HIGH heat. When it starts to bubble, reduce the heat to LOW, and let simmer 15-20 minutes.
