  3. 2 teaspoons sugar
  4. 3½ cups all-purpose flour
  5. 2 teaspoons salt
  6. ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  7. Yellow cornmeal
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, stir together 1¼ cups warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes or until foamy.
  2. In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse together flour and salt. Slowly add yeast mixture and ¼ cup oil, processing until mixture forms a ball.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for 5 to 6 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
  4. Spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Place dough in bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm draft-free place (85°) for 45 minutes or until doubled in size. Divide dough in half.
  5. Spray grill rack with nonstick nonflammable cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350° to 400°).
  6. Generously sprinkle cornmeal on a clean, flat surface. Place 1 portion of dough in center of cornmeal, and roll to a 12- to 15-inch circle or rectangle, about ¼ inch thick. Brush top of dough with 1 tablespoon oil, and sprinkle with cornmeal.
  7. Place dough on grill, oil side down, and grill, covered with grill lid, for 3 to 4 minutes or until top of dough is bubbly and bottom of dough is browned. Brush top of dough with 1 tablespoon oil. Invert dough onto a pizza peel or a rimless baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, cornmeal, and oil. Top crusts, and continue grilling as directed.
