Directions

For the pizza dough

In a large bowl, combine 1 ½ cups flour, the cornmeal, yeast, sugar, and salt. In a small saucepan, heat water and oil to 120 to 130 degrees. Add the water and olive oil to the dry ingredients and beat until just moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. 

Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
