    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Remove the dough from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 475°F. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Grate the fontina on the large side of a box grater. Tear the mozzarella into small pieces.

    Make the sauce
    2 Make the sauce

    In a small pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened and fragrant. Add the tomato sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and oregano; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the mascarpone until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Lightly oil a sheet pan. Using your hands, gently stretch the dough to about 1/4-inch thickness. Carefully center the dough on the sheet pan. Shape towards the edges of the pan, maintaining an even thickness (if the dough is resistant, let rest 5 minutes). Leaving a 1-inch border around the edges, spread the sauce onto the prepared dough. Evenly top with the grated fontina, mozzarella pieces, and half the parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Bake 17 to 22 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes.
