1 pizza

  • Dough:
  • 20 rounded cups high-gluten flour
  • 5 ounces slow-rise yeast
  • 1 ounce salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Green Sauce:
  • 8 ounces fresh basil, leaves only
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, leaves only
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil, for blending
  • Pizza:
  • About 2 cups shredded mozzarella pizza cheese
  • About 2 cups shredded provolone pizza cheese
  • 2 cups cooked tandoori chicken
  • 1 cup real crabmeat
  • One 4-inch piece hearts of palm, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • For the dough: Mix the flour, yeast, salt and 2 cups of body temperature water until well combines, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the Olive Oil and roll it into the dough. Place the dough in a pot, cover loosely with plastic and refrigerate for 8 hours.

  • Remove the dough from the pot and roll into 18-ounce balls, place on a tray and let rise 6 to 8 more hours.

  • For the green sauce: Blend the basil, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender, slowly adding enough Olive Oil so the consistency becomes slightly thinner than peanut butter.

  • For the pizza: Preheat the oven to 550 degrees F. Roll and toss 1 ball of dough until it is 18-to-20 inches around. Reserve the remaining dough for another use or for other pizzas.

  • Place the round on a pizza pan and cover with the green sauce; keep any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  • Top with a blend of mozzarella and provolone pizza cheese. Add the tandoori chicken, real crabmeat and hearts of palm. Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and top with the fresh cilantro.
