Recipe by: Frankie


1 cup warm water
2 tsp active dry yeast
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBSP plus 1 tsp olive oil
14-ounce can crushed tomatoes
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1/4-inch thick strips
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese



1. Add the water to a large mixing bowl then sprinkle on the yeast. Stir in the flour until well combined then add the salt and 1 TBSP of the olive oil and continue to stir until a dough is formed and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

2. Knead the dough by hand for 5 minutes then form into a smooth ball. Place the dough ball into a large clean bowl and drizzle the 1 tsp of oil over top. Flip the dough ball around a few times to cover the outside in the oil.

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


1. Add the crushed tomatoes to a medium size saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper. Bring to a slight boil then reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.

2. Take the sauce off the heat and set aside.


1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Lightly oil a 14-inch pizza pan.

2. Punch the dough down and stretch the dough to a circle roughly 16-inches in diameter and place it on your pizza pan so it overhangs about 1-inch all around. Lay the cheddar strips along the outside of the dough circle and then roll the edges of the dough over the cheese and press down to form a crust with the cheese sealed in.

3. Spread the sauce evenly over middle of the dough. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella evenly on top then sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 11 to 13 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
