Directions:
Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed mixing bowl. Add salt, olive oil, and 2 1/2 cups flour. Mix in electric mixer using dough hook on low speed for about 1 minute.
Continuing on low speed, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and mix until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl, about 2 minutes. Knead on low speed about 2 minutes longer.
Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover with lightweight cloth. Let rise in a warm place, free from draft, about 1 hr or until doubled in bulk. Punch down dough.
Brush 14 inch pizza pan with oil. Sprinkle with cornmeal. Press dough across bottom of pan forming a collar around edge to hold toppings. Add toppings as desired. Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes.

Personal Notes:
I also use this recipe to make breadsticks. Instead of a pizza pan, I I use a cookie/jelly roll pan for the dough. I use a pizza cutter to cut dough into "sticks." I then brush the dough with melted butter adding toppings like garlic and parmesan.
