Classic Sicilian Pizza at Home Recipe
Cuisine: Italian
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semolina flour
  • 1⅔ cup of water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking yeast
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp cilantro
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups crushed tomatoes
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 oz grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
To Make Dough:
  1. Mix the all-purpose flour, semolina flour, sugar and yeast on low speed in a stand mixer. Slowly add water, oil, and salt to form a dough and keep mixing for 2 minutes. Cover with a moist kitchen towel and let rise for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove dough and knead on floured cutting board. Shape the dough into a tight ball and place back into the bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and stick in the fridge for 24 hours.
To Make the Sauce:
  1. Heat oil and garlic in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste, oregano and red pepper flakes, then add crushed tomatoes and salt.
  2. Simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. The sauce will reduce to about 2 cups but become stronger and more flavorful.
Making the Pizza:
  1. Place a baking stone on the upper-middle rack and preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Oil a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and gently press into a 12x9-inch rectangle. Move it to the prepared baking sheet and roll to fit. Then, place a second baking sheet (oiled) on the dough and let rest for an hour.
  3. Go ahead and take the top baking sheet and spread sauce on the dough. Then go ahead and sprinkle the Parmesan and mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce and dough.
  4. Slide the pan on the baking stone and bake until the cheese is bubbly and browned - roughly 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Remove pizza from the oven and cool 5 minutes. Use a knife to loosen the edges of the pizza from the pan, slide it onto a cutting board, and then slice into squares. Enjoy! Serve with bread and olive oil for a perfect Italian meal.
