Homemade pizza is my favorite dish to make for my family. They love this crust because it is soft yet has a little crisp to it.—Kathleen Miller, Battle Ground, Indiana
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
- 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 5 cups all-purpose flour, divided
- Dissolve the yeast in 1/4 cup of warm water; set aside. In a large bowl, place remaining water, salt, sugar, oil, cornmeal and 2 cups flour; mix well. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-6 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Punch the dough down and divide in half. Roll dough into two 16-in. circles; place on greased pizza pans. Top with desired pizza ingredients. Bake at 400° until crust is lightly golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Yield: 2 pizzas (16 inches each).
