"I modified a dough recipe I found, and discovered it is a multi-use recipe. The sauce I whipped up after two months of trial and error. On top of all this, the dough can be used for other pastries, such as cheese bread, cinnamon bread, or bread bowls. My friends Kalee, Anthony, and several others, including school teachers and board members approve of this recipe."

Combine with yeast mixture using a big spoon (wooden is preferred, but metal will do) Dough may be sticky or excess flour will exist. If sticky, add flour & knead until moldable. If excess flour occurs, add water 1 tbsp at a time, stirring until flour combines into dough. Grease a baking sheet (size depends on size of pizza) Roll dough on floured surface, after letting it sit for ten minutes, to desired thickness. Place dough on pan coated with cornmeal.
