Ingredients

For the crust

  • package dry yeast
  • 1  Tablespoon  sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup non-fat dry milk
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 3  Tablespoons  canola oil
  • 2  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • 3  Tablespoons  unsalted butter, melted

For the sauce

  • 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 1/3  Cup  water
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  minced onion
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  dried basil
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1/8  Teaspoon  black pepper

For assembly and baking

  • 1 1/2  Cup  shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1  Teaspoon  dried oregano

Directions

For the crust

Put yeast, sugar, salt and dry milk in bowl of electric mixer.  Add water and stir to mix well.  Allow to "proof" for 2 minutes.  Add oil and mix.  Add flour and mix with dough hook until dough forms and flour is absorbed.  Mix on medium low for 10 minutes. Divide dough into three balls.

In three 9-inch cake pans, put 1 tablespoon canola oil in each, spreading evenly.  Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough ball into about a 9-inch circle.
Drop the dough into the bottom of the pan and spread it smooth to the edge of the pan, and use your fingers to form a raised lip around the edge.
Cover with plastic wrap or kitchen towel and place in a warm area to rise for 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Brush edges of each pizza with melted butter.

For the sauce

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.  Simmer 10 minutes to blend flavors. Let cool.

For assembly and baking

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

Spoon 1/3 cup sauce on dough and spread to within 1 inch of edge.  Add shredded mozzarella and a sprinkling of oregano. Bake until cheese is bubbling and outer crust is brown, 10-12 minutes. Cut into six slices.

Pizza Shopping Tip

Pressed for time on a busy weeknight, but don't want to settle for frozen pizza? Start with ready-made pizza crusts. You'll still be able to add your own sauce and fresh ingredients for a homemade taste.

Pizza Cooking Tip

If you're attempting to make your own dough, make sure to keep your work surface lightly dusted with flour, or the dough may stick.

Pizza Wine Pairing

Grenache, gamay, nero d'avola, pinotage, rosé; pinot gris/grigio with seafood pizza; albariño with white pizza.
