Makes 1 large pizza.

- 1 c tomato-based marinara or pasta sauce
- 3/4 c warm water
- 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
- 2 c all purpose flour

Dough and Baking:
- Mix warm water and yeast in a small bowl and allow to proof 10 minutes.
- Add flour and salt and stir until thick. Turn out on a floured surface and knead 5 minutes, adding a bit more flour as needed.

- Punch down and form into a ball. Cover and allow to rest 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Oil a large baking sheet (11″ x 15″ or similar) and sprinkle with the semolina.
- Spread dough out evenly on the baking sheet, using fingers to get it to edges.
- Bake without topping for 10 minutes. Remove and spread marinara sauce on top.

* I have used Worthington and Loma Linda vegetarian Products for many years, and I love them. The product line is constantly improving, and I feel the Saucettes taste better than ever! Recently, I received samples of the newest Worthington and Loma Linda products from Atlantic Natural Foods, and in the interest of full disclosure, I have used them in this recipe.
