cornmeal crust pizza.

Posted by

This tastes like… a savory corn muffin pizza?  I just can’t get over how much I love cornmeal.  This is my first time making pizza dough, and I have to say I have no idea why I don’t do it more often!  It was super easy, especially if you get fast acting yeast.  I just replaced about 1/3 of the flour with cornmeal and WAH-LAH!  Cornmeal crust pizza.

RECIPE:

  • 1 & 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic & herb seasoning (OR 1 tablespoon garlic powder and any dried herbs you like)
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 packet instant fast acting yeast

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • in a mixing bowl from an electric mixer, add flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper, garlic & herb seasoning, sugar, and yeast
  • mix until combined
  • in a separate bowl, add water and olive oil
  • with a dough attachment, slowly pour water mixture into dry ingredients while running the mixer on low-medium speed
  • the dough should form a ball – add more water if it’s too dry or add more flour if it’s too wet
  • remove dough from bowl and place onto a floured surface
  • knead the dough until it forms a tight ball
  • place dough into a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm, dry place for about an hour
  • when you’re ready to make a pizza, roll out the dough on a floured surface until it’s quite thin – the pizza dough will thicken a bit as it bakes
  • place the dough onto a pizza stone or greased baking sheet
  • add any toppings you want – I added fresh mozzarella, olive oil, basil, and tomatoes
  • bake at 425 degrees for about 12-15 minutes until crust is browned and cheese is bubbly
  • cut and serve!
