READY IN: 1hr 32mins
YIELD: 8 slices




  • Mix water, yeast and sugar and let stand 10 minutes to start bubbling.
  • Add flour to yeast mix and blend well.
  • Place in a greased or oiled bowl, and cover with a warm damp cloth.
  • Allow to rise in a warm place until double in bulk, around 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough and pat out onto an oiled (or cornmeal dusted) pizza pan to form the crust.
  • Bake in a preheated 450° F oven for 7 minutes. Crust may be refrigerated or frozen at this point. If using right away, turn oven down to 350°F.
  • Place olive oil, basil, garlic, ketchup, pine nuts, and lemon juice in blender and process until smooth.
  • Spread mixture onto baked pizza crust evenly.
  • Add tomatoes, mushrooms and onions (or whatever you like, really) and bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
