2 & 1/4 tsp yeast
3 cups flour
1 & 1/2 tsp Coarse salt
1/2 cup olive oil

Directions for dough

1. Dissolve the brown sugar and yeast in the warm water in a large bowl. Let sit until foamy, about 7 minutes or so.

2. In another bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Make a well, add the olive oil and yeast mixture. Mix with a spatula until the dough forms a sticky ball.

When the dough is ready, prepare the pizza.

Ingredients for pizza

6 oz sliced Mozzarella
2 cups of tomatoes (plum tomatoes are the best for this), drained, broken into chunks
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
S&P
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 tbsp olive oil

Directions for pizza

1. Preheat oven to 475 F. Very lightly oil a 10-inch spring form cake pan.

2. Roll out the dough until it's about 1/8 inch thick and place in oiled pan so the edges are flush with the edge of the cake pan.

3. Layer the Mozzarella slices on the bottom of the dough in a single layer. Place tomatoes on top of the cheese, sprinkle the minced garlic, basil and oregano on the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with the Parmesan and drizzle with olive oil.

4. Bake about 35-40 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the pizza is hot and bubbly. :)
