Nothing worse than bad dough for anything, bread or pizza. This came from a couple of years of playing around and I settled as my go to pizza dough. Cornmeal plays a big roll. About two hours to make.

  • 1/2 cup Cornmeal

Prepairing The Dough

  • Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/4″ thick.
  • Spread unsalted butter over top of it. (Soft butter only)
  • Roll the dough tight from one end to the next. It will look like a big cinnamon bun.
  • Cut the dough in half or into 1/3's if you're doing personal size pizza dishes.
  • Slightly flatten out about 1/4" with your hand then fold into three fold envelope pattern. Pinch the seams and form into ball.
  • Rise again for 45min in the fridge is fine.


My mixer sucks, I imagine most do.  I use mine for the first two minutes then I kneed by hand for the remaining 5 min.  By the way I'm listening to Billy Idol White Wedding while I'm doing this.  ?
