Football Pizza

When our team plays out of town, I like to make football food for everyone to eat while they watch the game on TV.  Pizza is always a favorite.  Here is the recipe for my dough:
3 C. flour
1 T. sugar
2-1/4 tsp. rapid rise yeast
3 T. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1-1/2 C. water
Mix this all together and knead until you have a smooth ball of dough.  Place it in an oiled bowl and let it rise until doubled.

I made a simple sauce by using 2 large cans of crushed Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes and 1 large can of tomato paste. I added some granulated garlic and onion (2 T. each), 1 T. black pepper, 2 T. dried oregano, 1 T. sugar and 2 T. Italian seasoning. Not need to cook this.

Split the dough into whichever size pizzas you like.  Top with sauce with cheese and toppings and bake at 475.  I bake them on a pizza stone.  

Simple to make and better than the local delivery!
