Directions

GETTING READY
1) Preheat oven to 450°
2) Take a large mixing bowl, in it dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Let it proof for 10 minutes.
3) Now add the flour, salt, olive oil, and remaining water. Mix well and knead until the dough is smooth for about 10 minutes. This process can be done by hand or with the help of an electric mixer with a dough hook.
4) Add more flour if needed to make a smooth, glossy dough.
5) Grease a bowl in it place the dough now and cover with a cloth to retain the moisture, and put aside in a warm place for about an hour or longer until it doubles in size.

MAKING
6) Now punch down the dough and allow to rest for another 10 minutes.
7) Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll each piece into a flat circle approximately 10 inches in diameter. At this point you can use the dough immediately or freeze it, well covered, for future use. (Frozen crusts must be thoroughly thawed before being used.)
8) Brush the tops of the circles of dough with olive oil.
9) Arrange ingredients evenly over the dough. The topmost layer should be of mozzarella or Fontina cheese.

FINALISING
10) Put on a baking sheet that has been dusted with cornmeal and bake until pizza is brown around the edges and the topping has cooked and the cheese has melted, about 15 minutes. (If pizza seems to be getting too dark, reduce oven heat to 425°.)

SERVING
11) Serve hot as the cheese melts.
