Pizza

Add 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp honey to 1 cup hot (tap, not boiling) water. Stir. Sprinkle 1 tbsp yeast over the water mixture and let sit 5 minutes, until yeast is foamy.

Meanwhile, mix 1/2 tsp salt with 2 cups flour.

Stir yeast mixture briskly, add to flour, combine to form dough. Knead dough 8-10 minutes, adding more flour as necessary.

Rub dough with olive oil, place in bowl, and cover. Let rise in warm place for ~1 hour. Punch dough down and shape into circle.

Sprinkle pizza pan (the kind with holes) with cornmeal. Place dough on pan. Add toppings.

Place pizza in cold oven on bottom rack and bake at 500°F for ~20 minutes or until crust is brown and cheese is melted.
