Directions
1.
Let dough stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Sprinkle a large baking sheet with cornmeal; set aside.
2.
On lightly floured surface roll dough to 15x12-inch oval. If dough is difficult to roll, let it rest a few minutes once or twice during rolling. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Lightly brush dough with olive oil; sprinkle with oregano.
3.
Spread the 2 cups of Bolognese sauce on half the dough to within 2-1/2 inches of edges. Top with Gouda cheese. Fold dough over filling; press edges together. Seal edges by pressing with tines of a fork. With sharp knife, cut several holes in top crust. Brush top with olive oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
4.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden and crisp. Sprinkle oregano and crushed red pepper. Cool on wire rack 10 minutes before cutting. Heat the 1 cup of Bolognese sauce in microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through. Pass for dipping. Makes 4 servings.
