Cooks Country "grandma pizza"

I was watching this last night, and the pizza looked fantastic.
It's a wet dough, spread in a sheet pan, topped with cheese & diced tomatoes.
Has anyone tried it? Can I use fresh tomatoes?

  1. Is there a link for watching it online? I don't think my TiVo picked up that episode.

      Google "Cooks Country grandma pizza." Use the KCET link rather than the Cook's Country link. Edit: that's for a recipe, not for video as you asked, my bad.

        Thanks! Looks like a pretty decent recipe.

          Thank you for the reference to KCET, Samalicious! I'm adding a link to the recipe here to save a step....and I'll definitely be visiting "The Public Kitchen" site again!

        1. I loved this pizza dough. The toppings IMO are very flexible, I imagine fresh tomatoes would be fine. It's a pretty sturdy crust once baked, although I had a tough time getting it spread evenly in my pan. That resulted in some thinner/thicker spots in places, but it wasn't a big deal.
          I made it as written, and the combo of mozzarella and parm was very nice. I want some right now...

            Thanks. Will hopefully try it this week

          2. Try a can of San Marzano tomatoes, drained well. Crush them over the pizza and give them a bit of Kosher salt.

            1. I hav already made this recipe twice since seeing the show. For the longest time I have been looking for a pizza recipe tht works in the home oven,and THIS IS IT. Don't worry about the toppings, use what you like, but the dough recipe is great. It reminds me of my moms (Italian) pizza
