Spicy Corn Deep Dish Pizza Crust
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

Place all of the ingredients in your machine in the order recommended by
your machine's manufacturer. Select the dough cycle and press start. You
may need to add some more flour (1 tablespoon at a time) if the dough is
too wet or more water if the dough is too dry (1 tablespoon at a time).

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a 12-inch deep-dish pan with olive
oil or spray it with a cooking spray. After dough has risen one time,
roll or hand stretch the dough into a circle so that it will completely
cover the bottom of the pan. Pull the dough up around the edges of the
pan so that a slight lip is formed. Cover the pan with a towel and let
the dough rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. While the dough is
rising, prepare your toppings and grate your cheese; set aside.

Prick the dough several times with a fork and bake the crust for 5
minutes. Remove the crust from the oven, and using a brush or your
fingers, lighly cover the crust with olive oil. Layer the ingredients in
this order; sauce, cheese, meats, vegetables and seasonings. Leave a
1/2-inch border around the rim of the pizza.

Place pizza on bottom rack of the oven and bake for 5 minutes, after which
time, either move the pizza to the upper part of the oven or lower the
temperature to 400 degrees. Bake for another 25 to 30 minutes, until the
crust is golden brown.

This recipe yields 1 pizza.
