Ingredients

If you're using a mixer, it's a good idea to do this in two batches.

10 Cups (45 ounces) bread flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons kosher salt (or 4 Teaspoons normal salt)
1 Tablespoon instant yeast
6 Tablespoons olive oil
3 1/2 Cups room-temp water (70 degrees F)

Sauce: (Adjust to your liking)

1 28 ounce can whole tomatoes
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 Tablespoon dried marjoram
2 Teaspoons garlic powder
2 Teaspoons onion powder
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon sugar (optional)
1 Teaspoon vinegar (optional)
Salt and pepper
Toppings:
2 pounds of mozzarella cheese (a bit over 2 ounces per pizza)
Various other toppings like canned artichokes (sliced), pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, bbq chicken, etc.

Directions

1) To make the dough it’s best to split it into two batches, especially if you’re using a mixer.  Add all the ingredients except flour to a large bowl or the bowl of a mixer.  Stir and let sit for 5 minutes until yeast foams.  Add flour and mix until it comes together.

2) If you’re using a mixer, mix on low with the dough hook until the dough forms a course ball, about 4 minutes.  Let it rest for a few minutes, then continue to mix for another 5 minutes on medium-low.

If you’re mixing by hand, dip a hand or a spoon into a bowl of luke warm water and mix vigorously until it forms a soft ball.  Whether you’re mixing by hand or by mixer, the dough should be soft but not really sticky and it should pass the windowpane test.

3) Divide the dough into 6 ounce balls and put them in oiled plastic bags.  Let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes, then store in the fridge overnight.  Be sure to let the dough come to room temperature before using.

4) To make the sauce, blend all ingredients until smooth.

5) To make pizza, roll out dough to an 8 inch pizza, sauce lightly.

6) Preheat the oven to 450 degrees with a pizza stone if you have one.

7) Slide formed pizza onto stone and cook for 5 minutes.

8) Remove pizza. It won’t be cooked all the way but will be partially cooked.

9) Top pizza with a few tablespoons of sauce, cheese, and any toppings you want.

10) Put in freezer for 10 minutes to chill.

11) Double wrap pizza with foil and label.  Store in a plastic freezer bag for up to 3 months.

12) To reheat pizza, unwrap and cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is melted.

13) Eat it up!
