Slab Pizza Pie

I find it much easier to press a pizza crust into a baking sheet rather than trying to shape a circle. It also gives me a great texture with every piece having an "end."

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water

Sauce and toppings:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 28 oz plum tomatoes 1 large can
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil in addition to the 1/3 cup above
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded or cubed.
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives sliced in half
  • 8 slices prosciutto

Instructions

For the crust:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.  Cover with plastic wrap and let set at room temperature overnight or at least 8-10 hours.

  2. When ready to prepare pizza:
  3. Preheat oven to 525 degrees or as hot as your oven can get.  Coat a baking sheet with 1/3 cup olive oil.  Scrape the dough from the bowl into the baking sheet and gently press the dough toward the edges and corners of the pan.  Let the dough rest until it can be eased into the corners.  Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.  Dough can set for at least 2 hours before topping.

For the sauce:

  1. Crush tomatoes with your hands into a bowl.  Add minced garlic, salt, chopped basil and olive oil.  Stir.

To assemble:

  1. First, spread mozzarella cheese on the dough.  Second, carefully spoon sauce over top of the cheese.  Third, add onions, olives and prosciutto.  Place in preheated oven on the lowest rack and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
