Rated as 4.73 out of 5 Stars

"For me, pizza is a staple of life. I worked at a pizza restaurant after college, and I've been trying ever since to re-create the wonderful pizza crust we served. This version, which my family loves, comes pretty close. -Herman Temple, Shawnee, Kansas"

  1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Add 2 tablespoons oil, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Press dough onto the bottom and 1 in. up the sides of two greased 14-in. pizza pans. Spread 3/4 cup pizza sauce over each. Bake at 450 degrees F for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onions in remaining oil until tender.
  3. Arrange tomato slices over pizzas. Combine cheeses; sprinkle over tomatoes. Top with onions. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Warm remaining pizza sauce; serve with pizza.
