Homemade Pizza

I love pizza a lot.  I’m a carbs guy, I guess, and toss on some cheese and toppings and giddyup!  My favorite pizza comes from the More with Less cookbook.  Homemade dough and sauce.  Definitely tastes better than the store bought sauce.

Oven to 450.
Combine in a bowl
1 c. warm water
1 package (1 Tbs) yeast
When dissolved, add
1 T sugar
1 1/2 t salt
2 T olive oil (EVOO)
1 1/4 c flour
combine (or beat) until smooth. Add:
2 c additional flour or enough to make a stiff dough
Knead until elastic, about 5 minutes.  Let rest 10-15 minutes, or, if you have time, put in greased bowl and let rise until double about 45 minutes.  Form 2 balls (or 1 deep dish) and stretch into 2 greased pizza pans.  Let rise 10 minutes.

1 small onion, chopped
2 1/2 c canned tomatoes, OR 2 c tom. sauce OR 3 cups fresh tomatoes chopped
1 bay leaf
1 t. salt
1 t oregano
1/2 t basil
1 clove garlic, minced
Combine in saucepan, bring to a boil.  Crush whole tomatoes, cover and cook slowly for 30 minutes until sauce slightly thickens.  Discard bay leaf. 
Add your favorite toppings (green pepper, onion, pepperoni, sausage, mushroom) and add cheese (1/2-1 lb of moz. cheddar or swiss (or a mixture)), bake for 20-25 minutes.
