Here's the recipe folks. Better late than never.


9” Dough Ingredients (STANDARD CAKE PAN; final dough weight should be about 220 grams)

All Purpose Flour 100% 117g
Fine cornmeal 8g
Water (110 deg. F) 50% 62.5 g 1/4 cup plus 1/2 Tablespoon ( 2.2 oz. )
Corn oil 12.5% 15.6 g 1.2 Tablespoons (approx. 1Tb=14g)
Olive oil 12.5% 15.6 g 1.2 Tablespoons (approx.)
Active Dry Yeast 0.85% 1 g 0.28 teaspoon
Sea Salt 0.7% 0.9 g 0.16 teaspoon (optional)
Sugar 0.1% 0.03 g less than a pinch (optional)

Proof yeast for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and only mix until its starts to come together. Knead for about 90 seconds.

Throw into 90 degree oven for 2hrs, punch down and throw back into cooled down oven for another 2-2.5hrs.

Preheat oven for 500 with Stone at bottom rack. Put in pizza and dial down to 450. Cook for approx 26mins. Foil on top for approx 10 mins to prevent crust from over browning.

Toppings in the following order:

Cheese (deli slices work best, go with 8-9 ounces)
Chunks of peeled plum tomatoes
Other toppings go on top (except for raw sausage which can go under sauce)
Pecorino Romano
Oregano

That is a nice looking pie!

For this type of pie I like to grease the pan with a good smear of real butter. It sort of fries the crust and give some added flavor, give it a try!

Yea I use corn oil but u can use butter, Crisco or even Pam grill cooking spray. Just don't use olive oil because of its low smoke point.
