Patricia Stagich


Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce

  • 4  Pounds  plum tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 Cup  chopped onion
  • garlic cloves
  • 2 Teaspoons  kosher salt
  • 1 Teaspoon  red pepper flakes
  • 1 Teaspoon  sugar
  • 1/2 Cup  olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup  snipped fresh basil


  • 1 Cup  shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 Cup  parmesan cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon  oregano

For the dough:

  • 1 Cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/3 Cup  beer
  •   Olive oil

If you're in a pinch for time and don't want to preheat your oven, make a pizza on the stove in less than five minutes.  The bottom crust is crunchy and the top is toasted for a just a minute under the broiler to give it that wood-fired oven feel - simple and fast.


Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Combine tomatoes, onion, garlic cloves, salt, pepper flakes, and sugar.  Toss tomato mixture with olive oil; roast 35-40 minutes until tomatoes have softened.  Remove from the oven and mash with a potato masher, keeping tomatoes a bit chunky.  Stir in basil.
This makes more sauce than you'll need for pizzas.  Use leftovers as a light pasta sauce.


For the dough:

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in food processor.  Add beer and 1 Tb. olive oil and process until dough forms a shaggy ball, about 1 minute.  Form dough into a ball, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half.  Roll each half into a very thin 9-inch round.  Heat 3 Tbs. olive in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat until just smoking.  Place one dough round into skillet and cook, poking any bubbles that form with fork, until bottom is golden brown and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.

Flip dough and top with tomato sauce and half of cheese mixture.

Reduce heat to low and cook, covered until second side is crisp and cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.

Broil for 2 to 3 minutes to get a nice crisp top crust.
