Ingredients

THE DOUGH:
1 cup warm water
1 packet active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBSP plus 1 tsp olive oil
THE MEATBALLS:
1 pound ground beef
1 large egg lightly beaten
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
THE SAUCE:
1 TBSP olive oil
1 pound roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt
THE CHEESES:
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Directions

THE DOUGH:

1. In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer pour in the warm water then sprinkle in the yeast. Add the flour, salt, and 2 TBSP of the oil, mix until well combined and dough pulls away from sides of bowl.

2. Knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes.

3. Form the dough into a ball and place in a large bowl with the remaining 1 tsp of olive oil. Flip the dough ball around to coat in the oil then loosely cover the bowl and put in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour.


THE MEATBALLS:

1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

2. Combine all the meatball ingredients together in a large bowl with your hands until mixed well. Roll the mixture into balls roughly 1-inch in diameter and place them on a baking sheet.

3. Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for 12 minutes.

4. Take the meatballs out of the oven and set aside.


THE SAUCE:

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the tomatoes and cook, breaking up the tomatoes as they cook, until the tomatoes begin breaking down, about 3 minutes.

2. Reduce heat to low and stir in the garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, crushed red pepper, and salt. Cover the pan and simmer, stirring and continuing to break up the tomatoes occasionally, about 10 minutes.

3. Take the pan off the heat and set aside.


THE ASSEMBLY:

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly oil a large 16-inch pizza pan or 13x18-inch rimmed baking sheet.

2. Stretch the dough out to fit in your pan. Spread the tomato sauce evenly on the dough. Sprinkle the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses evenly on the sauce. Spread the meatballs out evenly on the cheeses then sprinkle the Parmesan evenly all over the top.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 16 to 18 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
