Ingredients:4 c flour
1 c cornmeal
2 Tbsp yeast
Preparation:Dissolve yeast in about 1-2/3 c of 105 degree water with a pinch
of sugar; let stand 5 minutes. Add to flour, cornmeal and a little salt.
Knead for 10, rise for two hours next to the wood stove. Roll out into deep
dish pans, let rise a second time for 1/2 an hour. During the second rise,
prepare the cheese, sauce and toppings and then call in the children and let
them assemble the pizzas to give them a sense of ownership...bake at 500
for 20-25 minutes. While baking, open and decant the red wine (chianti works
well) and make a salad of mixed greens.
Notes:the pans came from http://www.lloydpans.com/baking.html

I usually buy my muzz cheese at Sams in the five pound bag, preshredded
(freezes well) and use commercial premade pasta sauce for the pizzas. Aside
from additional toppings, I figure a large pie costs about $1.50 to make and
most of that is the cost of the cheese. Sam's club also has Canadian bacon
at $7 for a two-pound package, and I also find their Italian sausage from
the meat counter does just fine as a topping as does eggplant, onions,
