My Yacht Name: Ad Astra
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 1 package active dry yeast 1 tblsp sugar 1 cup warm water (105F-115F) 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp olive oil vegetable cooking spray 1 tblsp yellow cornmeal
Directions: Combine first 3 ingreadients in a 2-cup liquid measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes. Combine yeast mixture, 2 3/4 cups flour, salt, and olive oil in large bowl, stirring to form a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes); add enough of remaining 1/4 cup flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to keep dough from sticking to hands. Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85F), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down and divide in half. Roll each half of dough into 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Coat 2 (12-inch) pizza pans or baking sheets with cooking spray; sprinckle each with 1/2 tablespoon cornmeal. Place dough on prepared pans. Crimp edges of dough with fingers to form a rim. Cover; let rise in a warm place free from drafts for 30 minutes. Top and bake according to recipe direction.
