  3. Add olive oil and 2 cups flour to yeast mixture. With the dough hook attachment, process for 2 minutes on speed 2. Scrape the sides of the bowl, increase speed to 3 and process until it forms a ball clinging to the hook and cleaning the sides of the bowl while adding more flour to it. Increase speed to 4 and knead for 4 minutes until smooth.
  4. Remove from bowl and form a ball by folding under. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, coating it. Cover with a tea towel and let it rise for 1 to 1:30 hours or until it doubles in size.
  5. When time’s up, punch dough, form a ball again, cover and rise for another hour. Prep pizza pan by greasing it with butter and sprinkling corn meal; set aside.
  6. Transfer onto a lightly floured work surface. Sprinkle lightly dough and rolling pin with flour; roll down to 16-inch diameter (pizza pan 14”). Meanwhile, make Mornay sauce.
