Jade's New York Style Pizza


For the sauce:
2 large onions, chopped
4 cloves large of garlic, chopped
1/2 cup of red wine
1 teaspoon each rosemary, thyme, basil, oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
For the crust:
2 teaspoons dry yeast
1 pinch of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt


Prepare your toppings to taste.
The sauce:
Saute the onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add the tomatoes, wine, herbs, salt and sugar. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until sauce is very thick.
The crust:
Mix together the flour and salt. Dissolve the yeast in the water and add the pinch of sugar. When the yeast starts to clump and rise to the surface of the water, stir and add to the flour. Blend well.
Knead the dough with the kitchen aid dough hook for 5 minutes or by hand for an agonizing 10 minutes. Divide the dough in half and form two balls. Oil two bowls with the olive oil and put the dough balls inside, turning to coat with oil. Cover and let rise for 1 1/2 hour. Punch the balls flat, then form into balls again and wrap with saran wrap. Allow to rise again for 1 hour. Spray Pam or spread olive oil onto (2) 12 inch pizza pans. Flatten each dough ball onto the center of the pan and press the dough outward until it covers the pan.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover the pizza crusts first with sauce, then cheese, then any vegetable toppings, then cheese again and lastly any meat toppings. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
