- Spray medium bowl with cooking spray; add frozen dough. Spray dough with cooking spray. Loosely cover bowl with plastic wrap. Place on counter for 4 to 5 hours or until dough doubles in size. (Time will vary depending on temperature of kitchen). Punch down dough.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place tomatoes in large strainer or colander placed in sink. Break tomatoes into bite-size chunks by hand. Continue draining tomatoes while working with dough.
- Spray two 12-inch pizza pans with cooking spray. Lightly sprinkle each with cornmeal; set aside. Cut dough in half. Dust work surface lightly with flour. Roll each piece into a 10-inch circle. Place each on a prepared pizza pan.
- Place tomato pieces evenly over both pieces of dough leaving about 1/2-inch of edge clear. Top each pizza equally with sliced mozzarella. Drizzle lightly with olive oil then season with fresh pepper.
- Place each pan on separate racks in oven. Bake 15 minutes; remove from oven. Quickly sprinkle each evenly with torn basil leaves. Rotate position of pizzas in oven. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown on top AND bottom. Cut each pizza into 8 slices.
- Cook's Tip: Fresh pizza dough may be available in your market. Follow recommendations for handling dough accordingly. Many pizza pans tend to deflect the heat while baking resulting in a pale, underbaked crust. If possible, use dark pans. Or, if available, use perforated pizza pans to ensure a golden brown top and bottom crust. In a hurry? Use two ready-to-use thin crust pizza shells in place of frozen dough. Top as described above. Bake according to pizza shell package directions.

My family loved this pizza. I followed the recipe exactly. It was very easy to make. The bread dough created a soft chewy crust. The canned peeled tomatoes gave a lot of flavor, just drain them ...
I mostly used this recipe as a guideline but whatever I put together turned out great! I didn't use the cornmeal and I just bought a pre-made dough from trader joes.
Delicious! I didn't have canned whole tomatoes, so I used fresh tomatoes, sliced them, seeded them, then chopped them and mixed them with minced garlic and allowed to drain. I also misread the...
