Process:

  1. If using Active Dry yeast, proof yeast by sprinkling on surface of dissolved sugar in 110F/43C water
  2. Combine all ingredients, knead until smooth.
  3. Place dough ball in a large, lightly-oiled container
  4. Allow to rise, covered. Warmth helps. Should double in size in a few hours.
  5. Prepare a cooking surface with light oil, sprinkle with corn meal, and sprinkle salt/pepper/garlic/oregano if desired.
  6. When near ready to cook, spread dough onto cooking surface, perforate with a fork. Allow to rise 30 min.
