Roll the dough around to coat it with oil, then cover with plastic wrap and let dough rest in a warm place until it doubles in size, hours. When you press the fully proofed dough with your finger, the indentation should remain.

Turn the proofed dough out onto a floured work surface and cut it into 4 pieces. Roll the pieces into balls and dust them with flour. Cover with plastic wrap and let them rest another hour until they have doubled in size. The dough is ready to be shaped, topped and baked. If you don't want to make 4 pizzas at a time, the dough balls can be wrapped well and refrigerated for up to 8 hours or frozen up to 3 weeks; thaw in the refrigerator and let come to room temperature before proceeding.
Shaping pizza dough: Hold the top edge of a piece of dough with both hands, allowing the bottom edge to touch the work surface, and carefully move your hands around the edges to form a circle of dough.

Hold the dough aloft, allowing its weight to stretch it into a rough inch circle. Don't put any pressure on it by pulling it or stretching it, just let gravity do the job - you want that aeration and cragginess. Keep it moving, and it will start to relax.
At this point, you're ready to make a pizza. Lay the dough on a lightly floured pizza peel or inverted baking sheet.

Gently press the edges with your fingers. You will start to see some puffiness or bubbles now. Jerk the peel to make sure the dough is not sticking. If it is, lift the dough and dust the underside with a little flour.
Tuck and shape it until it's a happy circle. Top the pizza. Instructions: Empty the can of tomatoes, with their juice, into a large bowl.
Add the olive oil with the basil and salt if using and using your hands, crush the tomatoes; discard any bits of skin or hard yellow "shoulders" or cores. The better the tomato, the less likely you are to find shoulders and hard cores. You want to end up with a textured yet silky sauce. I don't like using an immersion blender or food processor because these can bring out the bitterness of the seeds.

Turn up your oven to maximum setting, as high as it will go, and let the stone preheat for a solid hour. This is due entirely to Chris Bianco, whose Pizzeria Bianco is a destination for dedicated pizza fans. Here, in his first book, Bianco displays a fundamental simplicity in his approach: his dough, for instance, consists of only four ingredients. The fact that his toppings are so sparing speaks to great confidence in his ingredients. The bulk of the book consists of recipes for those other foods he likes: salads, sandwiches, and vegetable dishes that share the same straightforward philosophy.
