Mother's Day Pizza

Yesterday when I was making that frittatta at my Dad's I found my mom's rolling pin. So today I made pizza dough and marinara sauce.

The marinara was just sauteed onions, then add crushed tomatoes and season with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper.

The pizza dough is 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 package of yeast dissolved in 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of warm water (between 105ºF and 115ºF) and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Just put all that in a mixer and let it knead with the dough hook for about 5 minutes. Put in greased bowl, use either spray Pam or olive oil. Cover with plastic wrap and put in warm spot for about an hour and a half. The dough will double in size. Rolled the dough out to the size of the pan you are using. Sprinkle pizza stone or cookie sheet with cornmeal and put dough in the pan. Drizzle olive oil on top of dough. Cover lightly with marinara sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesaen cheese, Mozzarella cheese and oregano. Drizzle with a little more olive oil. Bake 425º for 20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned on bottom.
