A word so overused that its value has decreased, in a sense.
Still, calling Pizza awesome draws one in more than, say, calling it groovy.
Semantics aside, I adored this pizza.
It has a thicker crust than I usually make, so it was more like a deep dish style. Fresh sliced mozzarella, melting into the pepperoni and sauce made for such a simple pizza, with just a hint of oregano.
Yes, it was awesome.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 oz dry yeast
1 Tbs, plus 2 tsp olive oil
1 cup lukewarm water
3/4 cup pizza sauce
12 oz mozzarella, sliced
1 3/4 oz pepperoni slices (about 25)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400℉. Lightly grease 13 x 9 inch baking sheet.
2. Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the yeast. Make a well in the center and add 1 Tbs olive oil and water. Mix until a soft dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 5 minutes.
3. Roll out dough and press into prepared baking sheet. Cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes at room temperature, then bake for 7 minutes.
4. Remove the crust from the oven and spread pizza sauce on top, leaving 1/4 inch border. Arrange the mozzarella on top and then the pepperoni. Sprinkle with oregano and pepper. Drizzle with 2 tsp olive oil and bake until golden, 15-20 minutes.
4. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice the pizza into 6 to 8 square slices.
