Ingredients

  • 2

    cups bread flour

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • ½

    teaspoon sugar

  • 1

    package quick-rise yeast

  • ¾

    cup warm water (120º to 130º )

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • Cooking spray

  • 2

    tablespoons cornmeal

Directions

Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine water and oil; add to flour mixture. Stir until mixture forms a ball. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes). Place the 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, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down; divide in half. Cover and let dough rest 10 minutes. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), roll each portion into a 10-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough on two baking sheets, each sprinkled with 1 tablespoon cornmeal. ____________________ Food Processor Variation: Place the first 4 ingredients in a food processor, and pulse 2 times or until well-blended. With processor on, slowly add water and oil through food chute; process until dough forms a ball. Process 1 additional minute. Turn out onto a lightly floured counter; knead 9 to 10 times. Proceed with step 2 in above recipe. Bread Machine Variation: Follow manufacturer's instructions for placing all ingredients except cooking spray and cornmeal into bread pan. Select dough cycle; start bread machine. Remove dough from machine (do not bake). Proceed with step 2 in above recipe. Serving Size: 1 crust
