Pizza Sauce and Dough


The basic pizza dough and sauce ready and waiting for your favorite toppings!















Pizza dough:
¼ cup water
warm (100 to 110 degrees)
1 teaspoon yeast, active dry
1 teaspoon sugar
4 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons italian seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups beer
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pizza sauce:
2 tablespoons olive oil
cup onions
2 tablespoons garlic
28 ounces italian plum (roma) tomatoes
1 can, with juice
12 ounces tomato paste
2 cans
1 tablespoon basil
freshly chopped
1 tablespoon parsley leaves
freshly chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
freshly chopped
½ teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  2. In a food processor, combine flour, Italian seasoning and salt. Pulse until mixed. Add yeast mixture, flat beer and oil. Pulse until a ball is formed. Scrape dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for several minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Allow dough to rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Divide dough in half, and shape into balls. Place dough balls in separate bowls, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise at room temperature for about 1 hour, then store in the refrigerate overnight.

  3. To make the sauce: Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onions until tender. Stir in garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Crush tomatoes into saucepan. Add tomato paste, basil, parsley and oregano. Simmer for 10 minutes.

If you have a bread machine, just mix on Dough setting, then remove and let rise after it kneads and rests. The dough can be frozen in plastic freezer bags in one-crust portions. Important: Thaw in the refrigerator.
