Everyone thinks making pizza/calzone/breadstick dough is hard, but it ISN'T !!With just a little planning (time to allow dough to rise) You can make thin crust/thick crust pizzas, calzones (baked Italian "sandwiches") & breadsticks. This dough is versatile and easy, it makes 3 med pizzas or 4 calzones, make a double batch and freeze half before allowing to rise !

How to Make Oh so easy Dough

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix water, yeast and olive oil and garlic ... set aside
    (as it sets it will start to foam ... this is a GOOD thing )
  2. Combine cornmeal and flour.
    add remaining spices. mix well
  3. Add yeast mixture after it has foamed and to flour mixture.
    Mix well . Knead a few times .If really sticky use additional flour sparingly.
  4. Place in well oiled (olive oil) bowl, turn to coat top of dough.
    Cover with a damp tea towel and put in a warm place to rise.(kitchen counter is fine )
  5. When doubled in size (the warmer the quicker it will double ) cut dough into portions appropriate for use and pat into desired shape ie :round for pizza, calzones, rectangles for breadsticks etc...
  6. for pizza, prick dough with fork, top with desired toppings (flat items on bottom, raw meats on top)
    Bake in preheated 450* oven for 20-35 min until bottom is golden brown. Let rest for 5 min before cutting (this will help the toppings to stay on when cutting )
  7. For calzones, place dough on oiled cookie sheet , top 1/4 with desired toppings (You MUST COOK raw meats first ) fold over using a little water to seal seam, fold seam and press WELL. Brush with well beaten egg. Cut vent hole on top and bake in a preheated 450* oven until golden on bottom of calzone. approx. 20-40 min depending on size.
