flour. Empty the contents of the bowl on to the flour.

4.  Knead the dough for 8-10 minutes or until the texture is smooth and uniform. If the dough seems 
a little sticky, add a little more flour. One method

to knead, is to lean on the dough with the palm of your hand. Press the dough to the mixing surface. Fold the dough and repeat.

5.  Place the dough in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Place bowl in draft free area and cover with a cloth.

6. Let the dough rise for about an hour. Punch down the dough and wait about 45 minutes. Your dough is now ready.

7.  Cut the dough in half.

8.  Dust a rolling pin with flour and gently roll out on a floured pastry board until the dough is the desired shape. Keep using flour, as needed so the dough won't stick. (A rolling pin is not essential!
You can also just use your fingers to shape the dough!)

9.  Dust a cookie sheet with corn meal. (Oil will work ok, but the dough will be greasy.)

10.  Use a wide spatula and slide the dough onto the cookie sheet. If you have a peel, assemble the pizza right on the peel dusted with corn meal. Then use the peel to place the pizza on the pre-heated pizza & baking stone. (You can also assemble the pizza first and then slide a peel underneath the pizza.) 
Make sure you use enough flour under the dough!

11. Lightly drizzle olive oil over the dough before placing the topping of your choice.

12. After you assemble the pizza, bake in a 450-500 degree pre-heated oven for about 12 - 15 minutes.
