Cornmeal is added to the dough for added crunch. Easily made in the food processor and no kneading to do.

Great recipe! I found this when looking for a quick and easy pizza dough for dinner. Goes together in no time with the food processor. Was a little concerned that it wouldn't have enough flour to make a good dough and fill the pan, but this was absolutely perfect for a 15x10 pan and I wouldn't change a thing. Don't be tempted to add more flour, even though the dough was wetter than what I usually make, it was not sticky and was very easy to press out into the pan. Loved the addition of cornmeal for taste and texture. Prebaking would yield a crispier crust, if desired, and I suggest greasing the pan well with olive oil. Thanks, Marie, for another great recipe!
