Makes 2 (12-inch) Pizzas

3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 envelope FLEISCHMANN'S RapidRise Yeast
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons peanut oil


Quick Tomato Sauce (recipe follows)
1-1/2 cups  mozzarella and provolone cheese blend
1/2 cup     grated Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup     grated fresh Parmesan cheese

In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water and peanut oil until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually stir into flour mixture. Stir in enough remaining flour to make stiff dough. Turn out onto floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball. Roll each into a 12-inch circle. Place each on greased 12-inch pizza pans or baking sheets. Prick dough with fork; let rest 10 minutes.

Parbake at 450oF for 5 minutes. Remove from pans; place on wire cooling racks. Spread Quick Tomato Sauce evenly on each crust; sprinkle with cheese. Bake on wire racks at 450o F for 10 minutes or until done. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Quick Tomato Sauce: Combine 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce and 1/4 cup tomato paste. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon each of crushed oregano and crushed basil.
