Ingredients

Topping

8 plum, chopped tomatoes
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 tsp 2 mL salt
fresh basil leaves, optional
1 lb 454 g shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups 500 mL mushrooms, peppers, onions, etc.

Dough

2 tsp 10 mL granulated sugar
2 1/4 tsp 11 mL active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups 375 mL warm water
2 tbsp 30 mL olive oil
2 tsp 10 mL salt
1 tsp 5 mL garlic powder
4 cups 1 L Robin Hood® Best For Bread Homestyle White Flour, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF (220ºC).
  2. Topping: Combine tomatoes, garlic, salt and basil in a medium bowl and set aside to marinate.
  3. Dough: Dissolve sugar in warm water in large bowl. Sprinkle in yeast. Let stand 10 minutes and then stir well. Add olive oil, salt, garlic powder and 3 1/2 cups (875mL) of Robin Hood Best for Bread Homestyle White Flour. Beat with wooden spoon or electric mixer until smooth and elastic. If necessary, add more flour to make a soft dough which leaves sides of bowl.
  4. Turn out onto lightly floured board. Round up into a ball. Knead dough, adding more flour until smooth, elastic and no longer sticky (8 to 10 minutes). Place in lightly greased large bowl. Turn to grease top. Cover with waxed paper and tea towel and let rise in warm place, until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. Punch down. Turn onto lightly floured board and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll dough to large rectangle and place on to greased baking sheet (20" x 15"/50 cm x 38 cm) or two round pizza pans.
  6. Spread with tomato mixture, cover with cheese and veggies.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.
