3 cups Bread flour
1 1/2 tsp. of salt
1 cup very warm water
1 to 2 Tbs. honey
1 packet of yeast
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
basil and oregano, fresh
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
Any toppings you prefer (pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, pineapple, ham, etc.)
In a large bowl mix flour and salt. Dissolve the honey in the water and then add the yeast, allow this to sit until it has developed a good froth.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and then pour in the yeast mixture. Start kneading the bread by bringing the flour into the center. After all the flour has been moistened put it on a bread board and knead it for 12 minutes. Make sure it is smooth and has an elastic feel. If there is too much flour add a little bit of water and vice versa.
Let the dough rise at least once for an hour or longer. Coat the pan with olive oil and apply a generous sprinkle of coarse ground corn meal. After the dough has risen, roll it out and place it on the pan.
In a medium sauce pan saute garlic just until lightly colored using olive oil. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and simmer on low for about 45 minutes.
Assemble the pizza by spreading sauce on the dough. Add cheese to cover the sauce and then place your toppings of choice.
Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
