How To Make

Pizza Dough: Place 1/4 cup warm water with yeast and let sit for 5 minutes until creamy. Combine flour, salt, yeast mixture and remaining water in a bowl. We love this part! Knead the dough for about 8 minutes. The dough should be smooth when pushing the palm into the dough. Make into 3 balls and rub olive oil on the top. Cover with warm damp towel and let sit and rise for 2 – 3 hours. Depending on how you are baking your pizza, Toss your pizza balls to make a flat pizza dough. Place on flat surface with flour and polenta. Roll your pizza to desired size and thickness. Place on peel or pizza pan. Brush outer edges with olive oil. Spread sauce with 1 inch of edge of pizza dough. Add ingredients.
Pizza Sauce: With a knife, put an X on bottom of Roma Tomatoes. Pour hot water over and remove the skins and seeds. Slice into chunks and place in a food processor. Add fresh basil, garlic, salt, and pulse for chunky sauce or longer for smoothness.
