READY IN: 1hr 55mins




  • Put all ingredients except cornmeal in bread machine pan in the order recommended by manufacturer.
  • Select dough cycle and start.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and form into balls.
  • With a rolling pin, flatten the balls into 12- to 13-inch rounds about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Fold each round in half and transfer to a bakers peel or thin baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal.
  • Proof, covered, for about 45 minutes at 85 degrees F.
  • Place a baking stone in a cold oven and preheat for at least 15 minutes at 450 to 500 degrees F.
  • Add your toppings to the rounds of dough and transfer the pizzas to the hot baking stone (See Note).
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is brown.
  • Remove from oven with bakers peel.
  • NOTE: It takes practice to transfer the pizza to the stone.
  • As an alternative, bake the pizza on a traditional pizza pan sprinkled with cornmeal.
