Let's get started!

Dough
  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10minutes.
  3. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth and then let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Place dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a ball.
  5. Transfer dough to a lightly greased pizza pan. Prick the surface all over with a fork and cover lightly with sauce. Bake at 450ºF for 5 minutes.
  6. Spread the remaining sauce over the pizza and bake again at 350ºF for 8 to 10 minutes.
Sauce
  1. Cut the head off of the garlic, exposing the cloves and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap in foil and bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk tomato sauce, tomato paste and water until smooth. Add all the cloves of roasted garlic, the fresh herbs, salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes or until thickened.

Time to decorate!

  1. Dice olives and then place a batman cookie cutter in the center of the cheddar. Carefully fill the cutter with diced olives and then slowly lift the cutter (PICTURE at 6:54).
  2. Spread grated cheddar cheese into an oval shape around the cookie cutter.
  3. Cover the area outside of the logo with mozzarella cheese.
  4. TaDa! Time to save Gotham, one Batman Pizza slice at a time!
