Homemade Pizza

This is so easy and so good!

1 1 /4 warm water
1 envelope dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons cornmeal
1 jar pizza sauce
assorted toppings, optional
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Place 1/4 cup warm water in a large bowl. Sprinkle yeast over water; stir in sugar. Let stand 5 minutes. Add remaining water, oil and salt. Stir in flour until dough pulls away from side of bowl. Knead for 8-10 minutes.
Coat large bowl with cooking spray; place dough in bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until almost double in size, about 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Punch down dough. Coat large stone bar pan with olive oil; sprinkle with cornmeal. Roll dough to fit pan and press dough against edges. Top with pizza sauce, toppings, and cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is brown.
