Pizza Dough

5 C Flour
1 t Yeast
3 t Honey or Sugar
2 t Salt
1 1/2 C Hot Tap Water
1/2 C Olive Oil
2 T Corn Meal

Combine flour, yeast, honey, and salt in work bowl stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. With machine running, add the water and olive oil. Let mixer run on medium speed for 5 minutes or until dough is formed and is soft and elastic. This can also be done by kneading by hand.
Place dough in a gallon sized zip lock bag, coated lightly with olive oil, zip and place in a warm dry place to rise for an hour or refrigerate overnight or up to 48 hours. If refrigerating, bring dough to room temperature and let rise for one hour.
Sprinkle cornmeal on baking stone or baking sheet, spread dough and add sauce and toppings. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
