Slowly add the flour and cornmeal and knead into a ball. Do NOT over-knead. Place into a bowl sprayed with cooking spray, cover with a tea towel and place on top of oven until it doubles in size.
Once doubled in size, punch the ball down and allow to double in size once more (You can omit this stage if you use fast-acting yeast)
