  1. Place the drained tomatoes in a small bowl, and mash with a fork until coarsely crushed. Drain off any liquid that has accumulated, stir in the garlic and pepper, and set aside.
  2. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 14-inch circle. (For a thick crust, roll the dough into a 12-inch circle.) Coat a 14-inch (or 12-inch) pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place the dough on the pan, forming a slight rim around the edges. Set the crust aside for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Spread the tomato mixture over the crust to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Sprinkle first the Parmesan and then the mozzarella over the tomatoes. Top with the anchovies, and sprinkle with the oregano.
  4. Bake at 425°F for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is lightly browned. Slice and serve immediately.
