"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 pkg. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast
2 c. warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees)
3 T. vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 to 6 c. all-purpose flour
2 cans (8 oz. each) tomato sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons grated onion
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
4 c. (16 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
4 oz. Canadian bacon, diced
1 pkg (3 1/2 oz.) sliced pepperoni
1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced
1 medium green pepper, sliced
1 can (2-1/4 oz.) sliced ripe olives, drained
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. minced fresh basil

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt, and 2 c. flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rest in a warm place for 10 minutes.
Combine sauce ingredients; set aside. Divide dough in half. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 13" circle. Transfer to 2 greased 12" pizza pans; build up edges slightly. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread with sauce; sprinkle with toppings. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
