READY IN: 27hrs 12mins
YIELD: 1 pizza




  • For the crust: Make one day prior to baking. Combine warm water, sugar, and yeast in a small bowl.
  • Stir until combined.
  • Let mixture sit for 5 minutes, until foam begins to build on surface.
  • In a large bowl sift flour and salt and make a deep depression in the center of the mixture.
  • Add oil and yeast-water mixture to the depression and combine using a fork until you can use your hands.
  • Dust a clean flat surface with flour and kneed the dough until the dough has a smooth consistent texture. This should take about 1 minutes.
  • Rub a light coating of oil on dough and put in air-tight container and store in warm place for 2 hours, until it doubles in size.
  • Punch down dough, put back in air-tight container and store in refrigerator for 24 hours. (if you do not have that time you can use the dough now).
  • When ready to use roll out to 18 inches.
  • Place dough on pan and make a ring around the edge with string cheese.
  • Moisten the outering with water and fold over the dough to cover cheese and score the center of dough with a fork.
  • Finally, lightly brush the dough with olive oil.
  • For the sauce: Combine tomato sauce, water, sugar, lemon juice, and spices in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Once it starts to bubble, drop heat down and simmer for 30-60 minutes until desired thickness is reached (this makes sauce for two pies).
  • Assembly: Heat oven to 475°F.
  • Spread 1 cup of pizza sauce to the edges of the pizza crust.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese and toppings.
  • Bake for 12 to 16 minutes.
