No-bread-machine Pizza Dough

What you need: 

1-1/2 cup warm water
1 packet yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups white flour
2 tablespoon sugar
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour

What you do: 

Soften the yeast in the water. Add salt and vegan sugar. Stir well. Add wheat flour and cornmeal plus two cups white flour (until dough isn't sticky). Knead in the rest of the flour, add more if necessary to make a stiff dough.
Let rise for 5 minutes to 1/2 hour (depends on how much time it takes to cut toppings). Cut dough in two, roll out to fit pans. Sprinkle the pans with cornmeal to keep dough from sticking. Top and bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

This dough came out pretty well. I used polenta meal instead of cornmeal. Pretty much the same thing except coarser ground. I liked how it added a bit of texture and crunch to the dough.


Great dough! I used this to make calzones, and it worked great and was very easy. I loved the cornmeal addition. I did add a little olive oil. I halved my second batch but used 1-3/4 tsp yeast (more than half of a packet) due to meat's recommendation, and it rose just fine. I can't wait to try this with regular pizza!
