Because man was not meant to live on Cupcakes Alone...Homemade Pizza and Sauce

Homemade Pizza and Sauce
Originally uploaded by kel h
Pizza Dough: taken from Fabulous Foods
3 1/2 cups flour
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons yeast
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic chopped
1/4 c grated Romano/peccarino blend cheese

Start with 1 c warm water
add the honey and salt and mix til it's disolved
add the yeast and stir
add 1 c flour (I used 1 c whole wheat)
mix for a while (I used my stand mixer w/dough hook because i'm spoiled)
Then add the rest of the flour, the garlic, olive oil, and cheese and mix til it forms a ball on the hook
Let it sit for 45 min to rise

I took half of it and refrigerated it, took the other half and rolled out til it fit on a cookie sheet

for the sauce (and this was VERY improv)
2 cups or so of canned crushed peeled tomatoes
salt to taste (I am imagining somewhere between 1/2 to 2 tsp salt)
1 tbsp oregeno
1 tsp tarragon
2 tsp basil
a clove or two of garlic
1 tsp red pepper flakes
still and spread over the pizza dough
then add cheese

Bake at 450 for 10-15 min
the crust is crispy, but not crackery. Nice kinda hybrid between doughey and superthin crust.
