When you add cornmeal to pizza crust, it gives the dough a little heft, as well as an earthy taste and texture. This crust will hold up under multiple toppings.

Ingredients:  

1 cup warm water (about 110 degrees Fahrenheit)
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 tsp honey
2 tbls extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup stone-ground whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
1/4 cup coarse Floriani cornmeal
1 tsp salt
 

 Instructions: 

1. Whisk together the warm water, yeast and honey in a large bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to activate the yeast. When the surface appears foamy, add the olive oil and stir.

2. In a separate bowl, stir together the flours, cornmeal and salt. Add to the liquid, blending with a wooden spoon until a ball forms.
