Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 cup lukewarm water
• 2 Tablespoons milk
• 2 teaspoons brown sugar
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 Tablespoon shortening
• 1 Tablespoon corn meal
• 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
• 1 package yeast
• 3 cups all-purpose

In a large bowl, mix water, milk, brown sugar, salt and shortening with an electric mixer on a low speed for about 1 minute. Add corn meal, olive oil and yeast, and continue mixing it for one minute. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

Add remaining flour and mix it with your hands. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead dough about 8 to 10 minutes. Form dough into a ball. Let it rest about 1 hour. Form dough into pizza. For best results, dust the baking pan or pizza stone with corn meal to prevent the pizza from sticking
