Annette's Pizza

My friend and colleague Brian shared this recipe with me, but only after much begging and promising to use it exactly following his directions.

1 cup warm water
2 T yeast
2 T honey
1/4 cup olive oil
Dash salt
3 cups flour

1 sm. can tomato paste
1 sm. can tomato sauce
1+ t minced garlic
2 T oregano
1 T basil
1 T parsley
Dash salt

**You'll only be using 3 T of the sauce (yes, really!). Freeze the rest in 3 T portions for future pizzas.

Directions: Mix warm water, honey, and yeast in mixer bowl. Mix well and let stand for 5 minutes.

While waiting, mix sauce and grease large pizza pan. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Add salt and oil to dough mixture. Slowly mix in flour.

Spread dough evenly evenly on large pizza pan. Spread on 3 T of sauce. Cover with toppings and cheese. If you use too many toppings or too much cheese, your pizza will be soggy. The star of this pizza is the yummy crust.

Bake at 500 for 8-10 minutes on lowest rack.
