Directions

  1. Put yeast, sugar, salt and dry milk in bowl of electric mixer. Add water and stir to mix well.
  2. Allow to "proof" for 2 minutes. Add oil and mix. Add flour and mix with dough hook on stand mixer until dough forms and flour is absorbed.
  3. Mix on medium low for 10 minutes. Divide dough into three balls.
  4. In three 9-inch cake pans, put 1 tablespoon canola oil in each, spreading evenly.
  5. Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough ball into about a 9-inch circle.
  6. Drop the dough into the bottom of the pan and spread it smooth to the edge of the pan, and use your fingers to form a raised lip around the edge.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap or kitchen towel and place in a warm area to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Brush edges of each pizza with melted butter.
  8. Combine all sauce ingredients (tomato paste, water, minced onion, salt, dried basil, garlic powder and black pepper) and bring to a boil. Simmer 10 minutes to blend flavors. Let cool.
  9. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
  10. Spoon 1/3 cup sauce on dough and spread to within 1 inch of edge. Top with choice of toppings. Add shredded mozzarella and a sprinkling of oregano.
  11. Bake until cheese is bubbling and outer crust is brown (10-12 minutes). Cut into six slices.
