DIRECTIONS

  • If using the breadmaker, place the wet ingredients in the pan, followed by the dry ingredients; set to dough cycle and allow to run.
  • If not using the breadmaker, dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water.
  • Add shortening, sugar and salt.
  • Stir in 2 cups flour.
  • Add enough more flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, working in more flour as needed.
  • Divide dough into thirds; cover and set one third to the side.
  • Roll the remaining two-thirds into a 14 inch circle.
  • Brush a 12 inch, two-inch deep pizza pan lightly with oil.
  • Press dough evenly over bottom and up the sides of the pan.
  • Remove the sausage from the casing and crumble into the crust (it doesn't need precooking).
  • Saute onion and green pepper in 1 tablespoon of oil until tender.
  • Stir in salt; sprinkle vegetables over the sausage.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese and mushrooms.
  • For the topping, saute tomatoes and spices for ten minutes, breaking up the tomatoes with a fork.
  • Roll out remaining one-third of dough into a 12 inch circle.
  • Set over the filling in the pan.
  • Crimp edges of top and bottom crust together to seal well.
  • Prick the top crust all over with a fork.
  • Spread tomato sauce over the top and sprinkle with parmesan.
  • Bake at 425F for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden.
  • Let stand ten minutes before serving.
