A delicious thick crusted pizza that is chewy and crunchy in the perfect combination. Try our meaty topping suggestion, or create your own.
In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, cornmeal, yeast, sugar and salt.
In a medium saucepan, heat water and oil to just before boiling.
Add to dry ingredients; and mix until just incorporated.
Add remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, flipping it once so it is greased on both sides. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll each portion into an 11-in. circle. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of two greased 10-in. ovenproof skillets (or in a pinch, you can use deep cake dishes).
Sprinkle 2 cups of mozzarella over each pizza.
In a new bowl mix together the tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste and seasonings.
Spread tomato sauce over cheese layer.
Divide sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, red bell pepper 1 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
Cover and bake at 450° for 35 minutes.
Uncover; bake 5 minutes longer or until lightly browned.
