Equipment

  • Pizza Stone
  • Large Baking Sheet
  • Cooking thermometer

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast
  • 2 + 1/4  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 + 1/2 tsps. white sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water 120-130 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 3 tbsps Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 ounce pepperoni slices
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup ground hamburger
  • 1/3 cup chopped ham precooked
  • 4 ounces breakfast sausage links browned
  • 3 tbsps. cornmeal
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Place your pizza stone in your oven on the middle rack.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees f.
  • In a large bowl, combine one cup of all-purpose flour, Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Yeast, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Whisk until combined.
  • Add very warm water, and oil to dry mixture. Using a wooden spoon, combine mixture.
  • Slowly add in remaining flour. For this recipe, I used 2 + 1/4 cups of flour for the perfect consistency.
  • Dough will start to form a ball and will be slightly sticky.
  • Remove dough from the bowl.
  • Knead on a floured surface. If dough is too sticky sprinkle additional flour on it and work into the dough.
  • Allow Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Yeast dough to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Brown hamburger and sausage in a small skillet. Drain any excess grease and set aside.
  • Once it has rested, sprinkle 3 tbsps of cornmeal on the flip side of a large baking sheet.
  • Stretch and form dough ball into a 12 inch pizza crust using a rolling pin.
  • Place pizza crust on the cornmeal floured back side of the baking sheet.
  • Using a spoon, swirl sauce on pizza crust leaving about 1 1/2" of outer crust bare.
  • Sprinkle on cheese.
  • Sprinkle on all 4 meat toppings.
  • Open oven and using oven mitts, pull out rack with the pizza stone on it.
  • Carefully slide pizza crust from the baking sheet onto the pizza stone.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes total. Crust will be golden brown.
  • Remove pizza stone from oven and place on top of the stove.
  • Allow pizza to cool before slicing.

Notes

Pizza Stone Tips
Add corn meal to the stone right before sliding the pizza on it. I place the raw pizza on the back of a backing sheet coated with a little cornmeal. This helps it slide off extremely easily onto your stone. 
Do not ever place frozen dough on a hot stone as this will crack it. This recipe will make dough that is about room temperature so it is perfectly fine to add to a preheated stone. Cold dough is a big no-no which is why you should never place frozen pizza or dough on hot stones. The clay is very temperamental to drastic temperature changes.
 
To Reheat
Pizza may be stored in the fridge once baked for up to 2 days. Simply place it in an airtight container or wrap tightly with plastic wrap once cooled. 
To reheat, place pizza on a baking dish and place in a 350 degree (f.) oven for 5 minutes to crisp it up.
