Drizzle remaining tablespoon olive oil over dough. Spoon tomato sauce over top of dough, leaving a ½-inch border uncovered. Sprinkle with cheese and red pepper flakes. Bake 15 minutes, until top of pizza is browned in places and edges of dough are crisp. Cut into wedges and serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
