Recipe Directions for Zachary's Pizza Mediterranean

  1. For the dough, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water in large bowl. Let stand until bubbly, 15 minutes. Stir in oil. Stir in 4 Cups flour until smooth. Stir in remaining flour as needed to make a stiff dough that's springy, not sticky. Knead on lightly floured board until smooth and elastic, 3 to 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl. Turn dough once to coat top with oil, cover with tea towel and allow to rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour 20 minutes.

  2. For the tomato sauce filling, heat olive oil in large saucepan over medium heat and saute garlic until fragrant, 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, oregano, basil, salt to taste and pepper. Simmer over low heat until thick, 30 minutes.

  3. For assembly, roll 2/3 of dough on lightly floured surface to form 16-inch circle. Fit into 12- to 14-inch deep-dish pizza pan. Make sure dough is pressed against sides of pan and extends 1/4 inch over rim. Combine mozzarella, Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Spread mixture evenly over dough.

  4. Roll remaining 1/3 dough on lightly floured surface to form 14-inch circle. Place over filled dough. Fold bottom crust over top crust and seal. Cut off any excess dough near top rim of pan. Pour Tomato Sauce Filling over top layer of dough. Bake at 450 degrees until crust is golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
