Instructions

  1. In your mixer's bowl, combine flours and salt; whisk to combine and set aside.

  4. Add olive oil and continue to mix until the dough looks shaggy.
  5. Attach the dough hook to your mixer and continue to mix at medium speed for 5 minutes. At this point, if dough seems dry, add a little bit of water at a time, up to 1 tablespoon and continue to mix until combined.

  11. Press the pizza dough into a greased 10-inch skillet that's about 2-inches deep. Set aside.
  12. In a small mixing bowl, combine extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, oregano, garlic and pepper; mix to combine.
  13. Brush the garlic mixture over the pizza dough.
  14. Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough.
  15. Arrange the tomatoes over the sauce.
  16. Bake for 20 minutes.
  17. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheeses and crushed pepper.
  18. Return to oven and bake for an additional 4 to 6 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  19. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes.
