Cooking Instructions

For dough:


1

Heat the water to 120°F to 130°F. Mix 1 cup of flour with the cornmeal, sage, yeast, salt, and sugar. Add the water and oil. Mix until almost smooth. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a firm dough. Knead 5 minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Punch the dough down; allow to rise one more time.


For toppings and assembly:


1

Cook the bacon until done, but not crisp. Drain on a paper towel.


2

Heat oven to 500°F. Divide the dough in half; roll or press each half into a 9-inch circle. Place on a pizza pan or large baking sheet. Top each with cheese, bacon, and walnuts. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the dough is lightly browned. Sprinkle with parsley.


Variations: Use prepared focaccia for the crust. For the cheese, choose a blend of four varieties such as cheddar, gorgonzola, asiago and fontina. Substitute cooked, chopped duck for the bacon. To make a vegetarian version, substitute apples or pears for the bacon and use havarti and cheddar.
