For Dough:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the All Purpose Flour, Tortilla Flour, instant yeast, and salt.

  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic.

For Garlic Paste:

Place peeled garlic cloves and oil in a blender. Blend until the mixture forms a smooth paste.

For Pizza:

  1. PIZZA OVEN: Preheat your oven for 45 minutes before baking. FOR HOME OVEN: Preheat your home oven (and pizza stone or steel, if using) to the highest temperature (450-500 F) for 30 minutes.

  2. Slice the veggies and toss with oil, salt, and pepper. Place on a sheet pan and roast until tender.

  3. Roll out one of the dough balls into a pizza crust. Spread garlic paste evenly over the surface of the dough. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the garlic paste. Arrange the roasted veggies on top of the cheese.

  4. Bake the pizza until until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted and bubbly (8-10 minutes for a pizza oven or 10-12 minutes for a home oven).
