Sheet pizza

This sheet pizza is a mix between a focaccia and a pizza. I amended my standard focaccia recipe to make a more soft and pillowy dough. Also, the tomato sauce makes for a more moist dough.

Sheet pizza

You could choose any kind of toppings but I chose for the classic of tomato and mozzarella. I wanted to add fresh basil but discovered I forgot to get it so I added dry basil.

Next time I'll make a sheetpizza with the toppings of this 4-cheese pizza.

Dough

The dough is easy to make, especially if you have a kitchenaid with doughhook. Knead the dough until it passes the windowpane test (stretch it out until alost transparent. This needs to be achieved without the doudg tearing).

I let the dough rise 2 times. First time in the mixing bowl until visibly rissen (about an hour), the second time in a baking sheet until you see airbubbels (about another hour).
