How to make it

  • Pour the warm water into a large mixing bowl and dissolve the yeast with a fork.
  • Add 1 cup of flour, all of the cornmeal, salt, and vegetable oil, and mix well with a spoon.
  • Continue stirring in the rest of the flour 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Flour your hands and the work surface and knead the ball of dough until it is no longer sticky.
  • Let the dough rise in an oiled bowl, sealed with plastic wrap, for 45-60 minutes in a warm place, until it has doubled in size.
  • Punch it down and knead it briefly.
  • Press it into an oiled 15-inch deep dish pizza pan until it comes 2 inches up the sides and is even on the bottom of the pan.
  • Let the dough rise 15-20 minutes before filling.
  • Preheat the oven to 500°F.
  • While the dough is rising, prepare the filling.
  • When the dough has finished its second rising, lay the cheese over the dough shell. Distribute the pepperoni and garlic over the cheese.
  • Top with the tomato sauce.
  • Sprinkle on the seasonings and Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 500°F, then lower the temperature to 400°F and finish baking for 25-35 minutes longer.
  • Lift up a section of the crust from time to time with a spatula to check its color.
  • The crust will be golden brown when done.
  • Serve immediately.
