Pizza Dough for Calzones (Or Pizza )

READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 1 pizza




  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the white, semolina, whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup of the cornmeal, salt & yeast.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the water and oil. Mix with the paddle of an electric mixer for about 5 minutes until dough forms. Or you can mix with a wooden spoon for 10 minutes.
  • Knead by hand on lightly floured surface for 10 minutes, or in mixer bowl with a dough hook for 5 minutes. Alternatively, if you have a food processor you can mix the dry ingredients in the work bowl and then, with the motor running, add the water and oil. Process for about 45 seconds.
  • Lightly spray a mixing bowl and a baking sheet with vegetable spray. Place the dough in the bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise at room temperature for about 30 minutes until dough has doubled in size.
  • Punch down the dough. Then sprinkle the baking sheet with 2 tsp of cornmeal. Roll and stretch the dough on the baking sheet to form a 14-inch circle. After adding toppings, bake in a 450-degree oven until crisp, about 10-12 minutes.
  • If you're making my Spinach & Cheese calzones follow this recipe until you punch down the dough. Then refer to the calzone recipe.
