Dough
  1. Combine all ingredients in your mixer and knead the dough a few minutes until smooth and elastic. (You can also make by hand - you will just have to knead it longer.) Start with just under 1¾ cups of water and add more little by little if needed. Cover and set aside to rest until at least doubled in size.

  2. Place the rolled out dough on your baking sheet and put the toppings on one half. (Try to not put the sauce on the bottom do the meat or vegetables without a high water content first.)
  3. Fold the other half of the dough over the toppings and using a fork, press the edges together. Use flour if necessary.
