Basic Pizza Dough

Pizza is really good – its the all-american food – is it not? You can get it however you want it – usually whenever you want it. The only thing I don’t like about getting pizza in a restaurant – it is usually very greasy.
Fast food pizza – Papa Johns takes the cake with their sliced roma tomatoes!
Restaurant pizza – CPK – any of their pizzas are great – I love the mushroom one.
Far away pizza places – John’s in NYC – they have an old train station as their pizza place. how cool is that – and the pizza is amazing.
Homemade. Best homemade pizza I’ve had is at the Beeler’s house in Orange City. E makes the best pizza dough. Now, she grinds her own wheat, but I didn’t have time to do that (nor do I have the equipment).
Yesterday, snow day #3, I got in the mood for pizza and only had one pack of yeast left. Well, it went ok – probably could have risen a bit more, but it was good. Tasted great! Thx E!

1 c bread flour
2 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 T sugar
1 pkg rapid rise yeast
1 cup warm water
yellow cornmeal

Mix water and yeast – let foam for 5 minutes. Mix dry in mixer. Mix in yeast and water and let go for about 5 minutes till elastic and smooth. Oil bowl and oil outside of dough. Let sit in a warm place covered till doubled – about 45 minutes – punch down. Let rise again.
Bake at 450 topped with your favorite topping! Enjoy. And you don’t have to pay a delivery fee!
