Ingredients

CRUST

1 c
warm water
3 Tbsp
olive oil
3 Tbsp
sugar
1 tsp
salt
2 1/2 c
bread flour
3 clove
garlic, minced or grated ( about 2-3 tsp)
2 1/4 tsp
dry active yeast
1/2 tsp
dried oregano
1/2 tsp
dried basil

TOPPINGS

1/2 small
onion diced
1/4
green bell pepper, diced
2 c
shredded pizza cheese
2 Tbsp
parmesan cheese
2 slice
deli-style turkey
2 slice
ham, smoked and deli-sliced
1 slice
hard salami, sliced, from deli
1 c
prepared pizza sauce, or homemade sauce
1/2
roma tomato, diced in large chunks

Step-By-Step

1Combine water, olive oil, sugar, salt in pan of bread machine
2In a separate bowl add flour, then sprinkle garlic on flour and add the basil and oregano. Stir quickly to combine and add to bread machine. Lastly add yeast.
3Turn machine on dough cycle. Let the dough go through the cycle (mine is about 1 hr 30 min. After the machine is done and beeps, let the dough rest from 5 to 30 minutes as you prepare the toppings. (I just chop them into a dice size and place them to a bowl, hand toss them together, set aside) The longer it rests, the thicker and more tasty the crust. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 475°F.
Dump the dough out onto a sprayed pan you will bake the pizza on. Add 1 cup of sauce and add your choice of pizza toppings.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
