Mystic Pizza-Style Pizza

From Lora Brody's cookbook, "Pizza, Focaccia, Flat, and Filled Breads From Your Bread Machine — Perfect EveryTime".

For the dough:
2 teaspoons yeast
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons water

Finish the pizza with:
2 tablespoons olive oil
fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce or pizza sauce
1-1 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place dough ingredients in the machine in the order recommended by its manufacturer. Program for Dough, Basic Dough, or Manual, and press Start.

When dough cycle completes, transfer the dough to a floured work surface and let rest for 5 minutes.

Lightly dust a heavy baking sheet with cornmeal and set it aside.

Roll out the dough to an 11-inch circle.

Transfer the dough onto the baking sheet.

Brush olive oil over the surface of the dough; sprinkle salt and pepper over the top.

Leaving a 1-inch border, spread the sauce over the surface of the dough and top the sauce with the mozzarella.

Bake the pizza for 20 minutes until the crust is a nice golden brown.

Makes one 11-inch pizza
