Place dough in oven and pre bake for about 10 minutes, then remove. Top pizza with marinara sauce, mozzarella, and oreg- ano, and bake on the middle rack for 12–15 more minutes.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining sea salt and chili flakes, plus basil and sun-dried tomatoes if desired. Hell yes. Get your pizza-on this weekend.
