Two-Step Tuscan Crust Pizza

By Troy Bond

A trip to Siena in Tuscany transformed my homemade pizza.  In the past, I would spread out a pizza dough, pile on the sauce and toppings and throw it in the oven. The result was a half-cooked dough or even worse undercooked middle that I would have to cut around. But after I saw firsthand how sidewalk pizza shops in Siena did it, I realized that a simple two-step process can make the pizza perfect.

Making pizza at home is simple, delicious and best of all YOU control the ingredients. And with this easy two-step baking process you can make a perfect crust pizza that’s better than take-out.

Here’s how you do it:

• Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees (the oven has to be HOT)

• Take a Waving Grains 1 lb. dough (in the Deli case) and spread it out evenly into a cookie sheet using olive oil.

• STEP 1: Spread sauce lightly over the dough and place in oven for 3 to 5 minutes or until dough puffs up and sauce bubbles.

• STEP 2: Remove the pizza, load it up with cheese and toppings and place it back in the oven for 6 to 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese has melted.
