1 package yeast
6 cups all-purpose flour (6 to 6 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

In large bowl, combine 5 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt. Stir very warm
water and olive oil into dry ingredients. Stir in enough additional flour to
make soft dough. On lightly floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic,
about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare tomato sauce: in small bowl mix tomato sauce, tomato paste,
oregano and garlic.
On lightly floured surface, divide dough into 16 pieces. Form
into smooth balls; roll or pat to 7-inch circles. Place on greased baking
Top each with 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce and selected toppings.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until crust is
golden. Serve warm.
