  • 2

    tablespoons cornmeal divided

  • 1

    teaspoon olive oil

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • Cooking spray

  • 1

    cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim Mozzarella cheese divided

  • 1/2

    cup (2 ounces) finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese divided

  • 2

    red bell peppers roasted, peeled, and cut into strips

  • 2

    orange bell peppers roasted, peeled, and cut into strips

  • 1

    tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Directions

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tablespoon cornmeal, oil, and salt to yeast mixture; stir well until smooth (dough will be sticky). Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85º), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down; cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Roll dough into a 10 × 8-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with 1 tablespoon cornmeal. Cover and let rise 20 minutes or until puffy. Preheat oven to 475º. Sprinkle dough with 3/4 cup Mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, leaving a 1-inch margin around the edges. Combine bell peppers and remaining ingredients; spoon evenly over cheese. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese over the bell pepper mixture. Bake at 475º for 18 minutes or until cheese melts.
