  • Cover with a light cloth and let rise for about an hour and a half, or until double in size.
  • Punch down and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.
  • Spray a pizza pan or pizza stone with Pam and lightly dust with yellow corn meal.
  • Transfer dough to the pizza pan and roll out.
  • Or transfer the dough to a floured work surface and gently pick up one edge of the dough and let it stretch, gradually working your way completely around the dough.
  • Then transfer the dough to the pizza pan and spread the dough with your greased hands so the dough fits your pan.
