 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2                New classic pizza dough
    2       c            Fresh tomato pulp/sauce
    2       c            Diced mozzarella
    1       c            Diced swiss cheese
      1/4   c            Grated parmisan cheese
    1       t            Oregano,thyme,basil (mixed)
    1       tb           Olive oil
                         Salt & pepper to taste
 
   Fat grams    per serving:              Approx. Cook
   Time:   1/2 hour At least 30 minutes before baking,
   preheat your pizza stone or oven tiles to 450 degrees.
   Flatten the dough and form into a ball by folding the
   left side two thirds over onto the right side. Flatten
   the dough, pushing from right to left. Turn a quarter
   turn and repeat. Repeat this rapidly until you have a
   cushion of dough smooth on the bottom. Now turn the
   dough “smooth side up” and rotate the dough between
   your hands while tucking the dough under itself. This
   will increase the tension on the top of the dough and
   make a nice ball shape. Flatten the dough into a disk
   using a floured rolling pin. When the dough resists,
   allow it to rest a few minutes covered loosely with a
   towel or floured plastic wrap. Repeat this until you
   have a circle with a 14 to 16 inch diameter. If the
   dough is at all sticky, flour both sides heavily.
   Sprinkle your piel with cornmeal. Roll the dough up on
   your rolling pin and transfer to the piel. Adjust the
   dough as needed and quickly assemble the pizza. Brush
   the surface lightly with olive oil. Spread the tomato
   sauce evenly over the surface leaving a 1/2 inch
   boarder. Garnish the surface with the mixed cheeses,
   add the herbs and drizzle the olive oil over the
   surface. Add salt & Pepper and finish with a
   sprinkling of Parmesan. Open the oven door, position
   the piel at the back of the stone or tiles and give
   the piel a few quick jerks to make sure the pizza is
   loose and will slide!! Pull the piel back and the
   pizza will slide onto the stone. Bake for 12 to 15
   minutes. The cheese should be bubbling and the edges
   should be browning lightly.
