    Ingredients

    • ¾ cup warm water
    • 1 tsp sugar
    • 1tsp dry yeast
    • 2 cups APF
    • ¼ cup Professor Torbert’s Orange Corn Grits (+ more for dusting)
    • ¼ cup Professor Torbert’s Orange Corn Flour
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tbsp olive oil (+ more for greasing)

    Method of Preparation

    1

    Combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast in a bowl and mix. Let it sit while preparing the other ingredients.

    2

    In a large bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, corn flour, grits, and salt. Form a well in the center with your hands.

    3

    Pour the yeast mixture into the well you just formed. Combine the yeast mixture with the dry ingredients. This can be done with a stand mixer with a dough-hook attachment, a hand mixer with dough-hook attachments, or with your hands.

    4

    Once this is well combined, slowly stream in the olive oil until well combined. Knead or mix with a dough hook attachment for 7 minutes. Form the dough into a ball.

    5

    Grease the inside of a bowl with a very thin layer of olive oil and place the ball of dough in it. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise for 2 hours.

    6

    After 2 hours, uncover the dough and punch the it down, releasing most of the gas. Recover and allow the dough to double in size. This should take about half an hour.

    7

    After it has doubled, take out the dough and form it into a ball again, and return it to the greased bowl. Allow it to double in size again, about half an hour.

    8

    If you are cooking right away, preheat your oven to 500F. To store, wrap the dough in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 2 days.

    9

    After it has doubled again, gently roll or stretch it out into a baking sheet, pizza sheet, or heated pizza stone dusted with cornmeal to prevent sticking. Add your favorite pizza toppings and bake in the 500F oven for 8-15 minutes, or until done. For more browning, paint the crust with olive oil or melted butter before baking.
