Now found exclusively at one well-known pizza garden in Gravesend, Brooklyn, this style of pizza was once found in neighborhood bakeries. This pizza is deceivingly light, crisp, and slightly spicy. Enjoy with a can of soda.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons fine salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 (28 ounce) can plain crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (14 ounce) can pizza sauce (such as Don Peppino®)
  • 8 ounces low-moisture whole-milk mozzarella, very thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine water and yeast in a small bowl. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.
  2. 2 Combine flour and salt together in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Pour in yeast mixture. Knead dough until smooth, about 7 minutes.
  3. 3 Grease a large bowl lightly with olive oil. Form dough into a tight ball and lightly grease the top. Place in the bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  4. 4 Mix crushed tomatoes and pizza sauce together in a bowl to make sauce.
  5. 5 Grease a heavy-gauge rimmed 12x17-inch baking sheet generously with olive oil. Press dough into the bottom. Prick dough all over with a fork. Arrange mozzarella cheese slices over dough; cover with 1 cup sauce. Sprinkle Pecorino Romano cheese on top. Drizzle remaining olive oil over pizza.
  6. 6 Let pizza rise in a warm area until puffy, about 1 hour.
  7. 7 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  8. 8 Bake pizza on the center rack of the preheated oven until edges are very dark brown but top is not burnt, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before slicing into squares.

Chef's Notes

Prepare dough in a food processor if preferred; Look for crushed tomatoes with no basil, puree, or citric acid added.
