Pizzas

Ever since I have been cooking a lot of Mexican I have developed a love for corn flour. Tortillas with corn flour, pancakes with corn flour, and now pizzas with corn flour. This is my favorite homemade pizza I have made so far now.

(Makes 7 pizzas, you can double the recipe for 14)

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cps Maseca corn masa flour
  • 1 1/4 whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 T salt
  • 2 cps water
  • 1 T active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cp. olive oil
  • 1 T basil or oregano (upon preference, or both)

Toppings:

  • Canadian Bacon sliced in squares
  • Pineapple chunks
  • hot dog pieces
  • mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cp. pizza sauce (I used Ragu)
  • Add any other toppings you like

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 480 degrees
  2. In a medium size mixing bowl, add Maseca flour, whole wheat flour, salt, and water. Beat with dough hook or wooden spoon until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Add yeast, oil, and basil and/or oregano.. Beat until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and forms a sticky ball.
  4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let dough rest for 15 minutes at room temperature or until it doubles in size.
  5. Divide dough into 7 equal sections or on a floured surface, roll part of the dough with a rolling pin to 1/4 inch thick round. You can use a plate or your desired size bowl to cut around it to make the circle.
  6. Place dough rounds on a greased baking sheet and prick dough with a fork. Bake for 5 minutes so dough can harden a little before adding the sauce and toppings.
  7. Spread each round with 1 Tablespoon tomato sauce and top with ingredients and cheeses.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
