INGREDIENTS:
Homemade Pizza Dough:
  • 2.5 cups (300 grams) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast (I use this brand)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 7 ounces warm water (105 degrees F – 115 degrees F)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons semolina or all-purpose flour, for the pizza peel (divided)

Pizza Toppings:
  • 1 cup pureed or crushed San Marzano (or Italian plum) canned tomatoes
  • 2-3 fresh garlic cloves, minced with a garlic press
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2-3 large pinches of kosher salt
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons finely grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese, plus more for serving (I use my microplane)
  • 7 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (*preferably fresh mozzarella not packed in water)
  • 5 – 6 large fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnishing
  • crushed dried red pepper flakes (optional)


DIRECTIONS:
  1. Prepare Pizza Dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add the warm water and olive oil, and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until the dough just begins to come together. It will seem shaggy and dry, but don’t worry.
