This recipe is going to cover a homemade dough, homemade sauce, and how we construct a basic pepperoni pizza using a Hans Pizza Stone.
½ oz dry yeast (two packages)
2 tsp white sugar
2 cups warm water (about 100-110°F)
5 cups flour
¼ cup olive oil
2 tsp salt
Mix yeast, sugar, and water together and leave for about 10 minutes or until creamy
Add in flour, salt, and oil and mix to combine. The dough will be sticky
Leave for 5 minutes to rest, divide the dough into four equal pieces
Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and roll or pat into a round.
15 oz tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
In a mixing bowl combine the tomato sauce and paste.
Add all of the seasonings and mix thoroughly.
Mozzarella Cheese (approximately 1 cup depending on size)
For this cook, we are using a Hans Pizza Stone for Oven and Grill/BBQ. When preheating the oven to 450F place the pizza stone in the cold oven first. It needs to heat up as the oven heats up or the stone will crack. Same with after the pizza is done cooking, leave the pizza stone in the oven to cool down on its own. Pulling it out early will also crack the stone.
Place flour or cornmeal onto your peel, place dough onto the peel, and cover the dough with the sauce and toppings of your choice.
Bake at 450°F for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Let sit for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving
