Step 1

Mix together 3 3/4 cups flour and 1 1/2 tsps salt together.

Make a well and add 1 1/3 cups warm water, 1 packet yeast and 1 tbsp sugar.

Step 2

Let sit about half an hour.

When foamy, mix in 3 tbsps vegetable oil.

Step 3

Knead until smooth about 5 minutes.

Brush with a little oil, cover in a bowl and let rise until doubled in size, at least 2 hours.

Step 4

Pour tomatoes into blender and add optional spices.

Simmer on low for about an hour to thicken sauce.

Step 5

Divide the dough for two pizzas.

Roll out and cover the base of pizza stone or tray.

Step 6

Poke the dough a couple of times with a fork for more even cooking and less bubbles.

Brush on a little olive oil or butter and put in oven at 400 degrees for a few minutes until right before crust begins to turn brown.

Take out of oven and spread on 1 cup of pizza sauce.

Step 7

Layer with cheeses and toppings.

Continue baking until cheese browned.

Only use vegetable oil. Dough won't rise with olive oil.
