minutes. In the work bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel
blade, chop the herbs. Turn off machine. Add flour and salt.
Turn the machine on and
off a couple of times. While the machine is running, add yeast.
Process until the dough forms a ball at the side of the bowl. Add
garlic olive oil and process for 30 to 40 seconds more.
Transfer dough to a
bowl that has been oiled with olive oil. Turn the dough until the
entire surface has been coated with the oil. Cover bowl with a damp
towel and allow to rise in a warm draft free place for 1 hour or
Roll out on a lightly
floured surface and if dough is too elastic, try tossing it from
hand to hand to flatten it out. Lightly grease the pizza pan with a
little oil and sprinkle with cornmeal. Place the dough on the pizza
pan and trim the edges. Bake for 10 minutes @ 425 degrees.
Remove from oven,
lightly brush the crust with a little more oil. Top as desired.
Makes enough dough for one 12" crust.
