Number of Servings: 12


    1 1/2 T dry active yeast
    2 c whole wheat flour
    1 T sugar
    1/4 c cornmeal
    1 1/2 T olive oil
    1 1/2 t salt
    1 c warm water (not hot!)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix yeast, sugar, cornmeal, 1 c flour and 1/2 c warm water. Mix and let sit for 5 minutes or so. Add oil, salt and about 2/3 of the remaining flour. Knead well for about 3-5 minutes, adding flour and water one tablespoon at a time as needed. (Add water if the dough is dry; add flour if the dough is wet.) Dough will not be sticky. Place in warm space covered with a damp towel and allow to rise for 15 minutes. The dough will not rise much, and it will seem slightly tough. That's OK.

Divide into two, then use a rolling pin to roll into two rounds to fit your pans. Use a fork to pierce the dough on both sides, and place on either pizza pan or in a cast-iron skillet (for crispier crust).
Top as desired (extra calories) and then bake for 10 minutes or until crispy.

Slice each "pizza" into six slices.

    My family LOVED this! I topped it with fat-free refried beans, lean ground beef (cooked, of course!), shredded cheese (low-fat), and sliced black olives. YUM!!! This recipe is definitely a "keeper"! - 5/12/10

    I mixed all the ingredients together, it is far too piddly adding little bits of water and flour at the end. I let my crust rise for an hour and it almost doubled. Turned out very well plenty of crust for a large pizza pan and large cookie sheet. I like my crust thin. - 12/7/09

    I love anything Mexican, so this was fun to try. It was really, really good and a great alternative to tacos, burritos and the like. Glad I found it! - 8/24/09

    Just ok. Kinda flimsy. This recipes says +toppings & bake; the actual pizza recipe says partially bake, top, bake again; maybe that would help. Flavor was just ok for crust; toppings were yummy (I did refr beans, salsa, chicken, onions, cheese) - 5/21/11
