Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • For the topping see Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Pecan & Italian Sausage recipe (link in post)
  • ½ cup sliced or grated parmesan
  • For the sauce:
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • For the Dough:
  • 4¼ cups bread flour (AP works, however will change texture)
  • 2¼ tsp rapid rise yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ cups warm water (not too hot, but not luke warm)
  1. For the Dough:
  2. In the blender/food processor, add your flour, yeast and salt and pulse/blend until combined.
  3. Next with blender/processor on low slowly add your olive oil and water. Continue to blend/process until a ball begins to form. If dough is too sticky add a little bit of flour (about a 1tbsp at a time)
  4. Remove from blender/processor and on a floured surface knead dough by hand into a smooth round ball. Place in a large lightly oiled bowl and cover tightly with saran wrap.
  5. Let rise until doubled about an hour.
  6. Once dough has risen, divide dough in half (you may put ½ dough into fridge of freezer if only making one pizza, this recipe is for one 14" pie)
  7. When dough is ready to use, lay out parchment paper and roll dough into a round ball and flatten into a disk shape. Using a rolling pin roll, shape dough into about a 14" round pie, or to whatever thickness you desire. Preheat oven to 500 degrees, set rack on lowest sitting and place a baking stone or over turned baking sheet on rack. Set dough aside until sauce/topping is done.
  8. Next For your sauce in a blender/food processor add your cherry tomatoes and blend/pulse until almost smooth. Stir in your oregano, garlic pepper, brown sugar and salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Using a ladle or big spoon, pour sauce onto prepared pie dough and using the back of the spoon spread sauce out using a spiral motion leaving about a ¼" of space around perimeter.
  10. Add your prepared topping on top of sauce and with the parchment paper place pizza in oven for about 9 minutes or until crust begins to brown. Add your ½ cup parmesan (sprinkling all over) and place back in oven for an addition 3-5 minutes, until cheese is melted and crust looks done. Remove, slice, and serve!
