Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons rapid-rising dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Cornmeal for dusting
  • Toppings for this recipe:
  • Olive oil
  • Coarse salt
  • Slow roasted tomatoes or sundried tomatoes
  • Kalamata olives pitted and chopped
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Carmelized onions
  • Minced garlic
  • Shredded Parmesan
  • Fresh Herbs

Instructions 

  • Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Proof the yeast in the bowl of a standing mixer by combining it with the sugar and warm water. Stir to dissolve. Let stand 3 minutes until foam appears.
  • Using a dough hook attachment, turn the mixer on low and slowly add the flour to the bowl.
  • Dissolve salt in 2 tablespoons of water and add it to the bowl.
  • Pour in 1/4 cup olive oil.
  • When the dough starts to come together, increase the speed to medium.
  • Mix until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes, adding flour as necessary.
  • Turn the dough onto a work surface and fold over itself a few times.
  • Form the dough into a round and place in an oiled bowl, turn to coat the entire ball with oil.
  • Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  • Grease a jelly roll pan with olive oil and sprinkle with corn meal.
  • Once the dough is doubled and domed, turn it out onto the counter.
  • Roll and stretch the dough out to an oblong shape about 1/2-inch thick.
  • Place dough on the pan and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Uncover the dough and dimple with your fingertips.
  • Brush the surface with more olive oil and then add your toppings.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned on top.
  • Serve
