Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil
¾ cup water
1 ½ cups bread flour
8.25 ounces
2 ¼ teaspoons yeast, active dry
1 teaspoon sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
28 ounces tomatoes, canned
diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic
minced
1 teaspoon oregano
dried
¼ teaspoon salt
8 ounces mozzarella cheese
shredded
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons basil
fresh, chopped

Directions

MAKE THE CRUST:

Grease a rimmed baking sheet with 1 or 2 tablespoons of the oil. Mix the water and 1 tablespoon of oil in a liquid measuring cup.

Using a stand mixer with the dough hook mix flour, yeast, sugar, and salt on low speed. With the mixer running, slowly add water mixture and mix until dough comes together, about 1 minute.

Increase speed to setting 2 or 3 and knead until dough is smooth and comes away from sides of bowl, about 8 minutes.

Transfer dough to greased baking sheet and turn to coat.

Stretch the dough to a large rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Stretch dough to corners of pan, cover loosely with plastic, and let rise in warm place until slightly puffed, about 45 minutes.

Position oven rack to lowest setting and preheat oven to 500 degrees F. If you have a pizza stone place it on the rack.

TOPPING

While the dough is rising, drain the tomatoes in a colander over the sink.

Combine the tomatoes, oil, garlic, oregano, and salt in bowl.

Mix the mozzarella and Parmesan in second bowl.

Sprinkle the cheeses over dough, leaving a half inch border around edges.

Top with tomato mixture and bake until well browned and bubbling, about 15 minutes.

Slide pizza onto wire rack, sprinkle with basil, and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
