2-¾ cups Flour
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Yeast
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Oregano
1 teaspoon Thyme
½ teaspoons Basil
1 pinch Black Pepper
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 cup Water
Combine flour, sugar, salt, yeast, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, basil, and pepper. Then add oil and water. Mix just until dough has come together. Lay the dough out on a smooth lightly floured surface and knead until it is smooth and and looks elastic. (I usually only need it a few times)
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Then get a large bowl and oil the sides and bottom of the bowl with olive oil. Place dough inside and lay a damp towel over the top of the bowl. Sit the bowl in a warm place and let dough rise for 20-25 minutes.
After the dough has risen, take it out of the bowl and punch it down. Then place it on a baking sheet or baking pan and flatten it out into a large rectangle. Brush olive oil on the top and sprinkle salt.
Now for the fun part! Add tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, fresh herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary,…) garlic, meat (or perhaps not?), and nice fresh cheese.
Place in oven for about 16-18 minutes.
