1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 cup warm water (105-115F)
1 tbsp oil

For Pizza Sauce:

For Pizza Dough:
Preheat oven to 500F (for at least 30 minutes)
Combine yeast, flour, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl fitted with a dough hook on slow speed.
Pour in the warm water as the mixer is going. Knead until a ball forms, tacky and elastic.
Knead again by hand on a floured surface until smooth and elastic.
Lightly coat dough with oil and place in a bowl. Cover and let proof for about 20 minutes.
Once proofed, divide dough according to desired thickness of crust.
·      For three 9” thin crust pizzas, divide dough into thirds.
·      For two 9” regular crust pizzas, divide dough in half.

Combine tomato paste, tomato puree, garlic and Mexican oregano in a small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce it to a simmer and let it cook while you prepare the other pizza toppings.
