Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. For sauce, in a blender or food processor cover and blend tomatoes and garlic until nearly smooth. Stir in oregano and salt.

    Pour tomato mixture into a well-seasoned 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes or until excess liquid is evaporated and sauce is reduced to 2 cups. Remove 1/2 cup of the sauce to use for pizza. Store remaining sauce for other uses.* Rinse and dry skillet; brush with 1 tsp. of the oil.

    On a lightly floured surface, roll Food Processor Pizza Dough into a 14-inch circle. Transfer to prepared skillet and roll down excess dough to form edge of crust. Brush dough with 2 tsp. of the oil and spread with reserved 1/2 cup sauce. Top with cheese.

    Cook pizza over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Transfer to oven and bake 18 to 20 minutes or until crust and cheese are light brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Drizzle with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil and sprinkle with basil.

*To Store

Divide remaining sauce into 1/2-cup portions and transfer to freezer containers. Freeze up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight before using.
