White Pizza

With this recipe you won’t even need the phone number for Domino’s. You can make your own pizza dough or buy pre-made dough from Wal-Mart. My favorite type is pesto sauce with tomatoes and mozzarella, but you can be creative and try any combinations you might like. Happy baking!

Dough Ingredients:

1 1/4 c. water

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. sugar

2 tsp. salt

1/4 c. cornmeal

3 Tbsp. whole wheat flour

3 c. flour

1 Tbsp. yeast

Directions:

1. Mix warm water, oil, salt, sugar and yeast.

2. Let sit about 10 min, until foamy.

3. Add cornmeal and flours.

4. Knead dough five to 10 minutes on a floured surface. Don’t knead too much or the dough will be tough.

5. Let rise in greased bowl until doubled and then punch down.

6. After dough has risen, chill for two hours.

Makes enough dough for two 12-inch pizzas.
