Total Calories: 394


1 (14 1/2-ounce) can stewed tomatoes
2 teaspoons garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 cups shredded pizza-blend cheese
Garnish: chopped salami, olives, onions, green peppers, green chiles, other toppings
Optional: anchovies
Pizza Dough:
1 1/3 cups warm water
1 envelope active dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt


Grandma's Sicilian Pizza:
Prepare Pizza Dough; let rise while preparing the sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine undrained tomatoes, garlic and herbs. Bring to a boil; cook about 15 minutes, breaking up tomatoes with a spoon. Place Pizza Dough in the center of a greased 15"x10" jelly-roll pan; spread dough out to edges of pan. Spread sauce over dough; add cheese and desired toppings. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, until edges are lightly golden.

Pizza Dough:
Heat water until very warm, about 110 to 115 degrees; pour into a large bowl. Add yeast; stir until dissolved. Add flour, olive oil and salt; mix well and let rise about 15 minutes.

Tip: For a crisp pizzeria-style finish, dust the pizza pan with cornmeal before adding the crust.
