    For the Dough:

    • 1 1/2 cups water 360ml, warm (100F - 110F)
    • 4 cups all-purpose flour 480g, plus extra for kneading
    • 2 packages dry yeast 14g
    • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
    • 1 pinch kosher salt
    • 1 tsp olive oil plus more for the bowl
    • 2 tsp rosemary crushed, dried

    For the Toppings:

    • 1/3 cup pizza sauce 80ml
    • 3 cups cherry tomatoes halved
    • 1 1/2 cups fresh mozzarella sliced into disks
    • 1 pinch sea salt


    For the Dough:

    • In a warm mixing bowl, add warm water (about 100F), yeast and sugar. Wait about 7 minutes or until you see bubbles forming in the mixture.
    • Pour in salt, rosemary and olive oil. Mix until combined.
    • Attach a dough hook to a standing mixer. Add the flour.
    • Mix on low for about 1 minute. Increase to medium speed until the dough comes together in a ball
    • Use olive oil to coat the dough ball. Place it in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or a fabric bonnet and place in a draft-less place to rise for about an hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
    • Preheat the oven to 450F degrees. When the dough has doubled, punch it down with your fists. Flour a work surface and knead for about 5 minutes.
    • Cut the dough into 4 parts.
    • Work each dough ball into a stretched circle.
    • On piece of parchment paper, prepare each pizza crust by pressing the dough down to create a collar. You can also use a pizza stone or baking tray.

    For the Topping:

    • Brush the dough with oil and distribute the pizza sauce. Add mozzarella slices and tomatoes. Sprinkle with sea salt.
    • Bake for about 10 minutes, crust should be golden brown and tomatoes will have softened.
    • Sprinkle with fresh basil leaves just before serving.
