Excellent crust! Don't let the time put you off - this is really easy. This makes a very thick crusted pizza and could potentially be used to make 2 medium sized pizzas depending on how big a pizza your oven can take.

Directions

  1. Add yeast and sugar to warm water, and let proof until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add 2 cups of flour, salt, cornmeal and olive oil.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Gradually add remaining flour and mix until dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  5. Place dough in an oiled bowl, turning once to coat.
  6. Cover and place in warm, draft-free area until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
  7. Remove dough and punch down.
  8. Mix the olive oil, parmesan, garlic and fresh herbs.
  9. Using hands, work thoroughly into dough.
  10. Re-oil bowl, cover and let rise again until doubled.
  11. Remove dough, shape into crust, add desired toppings, and bake in a preheated 500-degree oven for 15 minutes.
  12. Reduce heat to 350-degrees and bake 15-20 minutes longer, until crust is evenly browned.
  13. Note: this tends to make a thick-crusted pizza.
