    6                    To 8 servings
    1 1/2   pk           Dry yeast
    1       t            Sugar
    1       c            Warm water (105 F to 115 F)
    1       t            Salt
    2 1/2   c            (or more) all-purpose flour
    2       tb           Vegetable oil
      1/3   c            Olive oil
    1       lg           Shallot
    4       lg           Garlic cloves
      1/2   ts           Dried oregano, crumbled
      1/2   ts           Dried basil, crumbled
      1/2   ts           Dried parsley, crumbled
      1/2   ts           Crushed dried red pepper
                         -flakes
      1/4   ts           Dried thyme, crumbled
      1/4   ts           Freshly ground pepper
    1       lb           Fontina or Gruyere cheese,
                         -grated
 
   Sprinkle yeast and sugar over water in large bowl of
   heavy-duty mixer; stir to dissolve.  Add salt and mix
   to blend.  Add 2 1/2 cups flour and oil and mix until
   dough forms ball and cleans sides of bowl, adding more
   flour 1 Tbs at a time if necessary, about 5 minutes.
   Continue mixing until dough is smooth and elastic,
   about 10 minutes. Cover dough and let stand in warm
   draft-free area 1 hour.
   
   Mix all remaining ingredients except cheese in
   processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides
   of bowl, about 1 minute. (Sauce can be prepared 5 days
   ahead, covered and refrigerated.)
   
   Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface.  Divide
   in half. Pat each half into round.  Let stand 10
   minutes.
   
   Preheat oven to 475 F.  Roll each round out on lightly
   floured surface into circle 1/8-inch thick.  Transfer
   to cake rack or any flat perforated pan. Spread with
   sauce.  Sprinkle with cheese. Bake on rack until edges
   of pizzas are lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Serve
   pizzas immediately.
