THE DOUGH:
1 cup warm water
1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP plus 1 TBSP olive oil
THE SAUCE:
2 TBSP olive oil
2 pounds Roma tomatoes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
salt & pepper
THE TOPPINGS:
1 pound pork belly (pork side), cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

THE DOUGH:
1 cup warm water
1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP plus 1 TBSP olive oil

THE SAUCE:
2 TBSP olive oil
2 pounds Roma tomatoes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
salt & pepper

THE TOPPINGS:
1 pound pork belly (pork side), cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese


THE DOUGH:

1. Add the water to large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast on the water and stir to combine. Stir in the whole wheat flour, salt, and 2 TBSP of olive oil until well combined and a dough is formed.

2. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead by hand for about 5 minutes.

3. Form the dough into a smooth ball and transfer to a large clean bowl. Drizzle 1 TBSP olive oil over the dough ball and flip around a few times to coat the dough in the oil.

4. Loosely cover the bowl and set in a warm place to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.


THE SAUCE:

1. Use a sharp knife to cut a shallow X mark on the bottom (the opposite side of where the stem would be) of each tomato.

2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

3. Add the tomatoes to the boiling water and boil for 1 minute then use a slotted spoon to transfer the tomatoes to a large bowl of ice water.

4. When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle peel off the skins, the skins should peel off easily starting from where you cut an X mark.

6. Roughly chop the tomatoes and set aside.

5. Empty any water from the pot and heat the oil in it over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the tomatoes and cook, breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon or spatula as they cook, until the tomatoes begin breaking down, about 3 minutes.

7. Reduce heat to low and stir in the garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, crushed red pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt. Simmer over low heat, occasionally stirring and breaking up the tomatoes, about 20 minutes.

8. Taste the sauce and season with additional salt & pepper if necessary.


THE TOPPINGS:

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. In a small bowl mix together the smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.

3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Use your hands to rub the pork slices evenly with the spice mixture then lay the sliced pork in a single layer on the parchment paper.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes then flip and bake for an additional 15 minutes to 20 minutes or until your desired crispiness.

5. Transfer the pork to a paper towel lined plate the pat the top with another paper towel to remove any excess grease.

6. Chop the pork into small squares and set aside.


THE ASSEMBLY:

1. Preheat the oven to 475°F.

2. Lightly oil a large 16-inch pizza pan or an 18x13-inch baking sheet. Punch down the dough then stretch it and fit it on your pan.

3. Spread the sauce evenly on top of the dough. Sprinkle the cheeses evenly on top of the sauce. Sprinkle the pork evenly on top of the cheeses.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 14 to 17 minutes or until the pizza crust is lightly browned.
