active dry yeast
granulated white sugar
(about 4 cups)
cornmeal or semonlina
olive oil, to drizzle
In the bowl of your stand mixer, stir together the warm water, yeast and sugar. Let sit a few minutes, until foamy.
Add the flour and salt and mix on medium until you have a smooth, slightly tacky dough that has come away from the sides of the bowl into a neat ball.
Sprinkle the bottom of a 12 inch cast iron pan with cornmeal or semolina. Stretch out dough and lay in the pan. Cover with a towel and let rise for half an hour.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Using your fingers, push down little dimples all over the dough. Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until done.
Optional: add in some dried or fresh herbs when mixing the dough and on top. Scatter cheese on top before baking if you'd like.
