8 servings


  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

  • cup white sugar

  • cup water

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup bread flour

  • ¼ cup corn oil

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour, or as needed


  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in water in a bowl. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.

  2. Mix 2 cups all-purpose flour, bread flour, corn oil, and salt together in a bowl; add yeast mixture and knead on a work surface using about 1/2 all-purpose flour until well mixed. Let dough rise in a warm area until doubled in size; about 2 hours.

Cook's Note:

To cook dough, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Punch dough down and spread into a 16-inch pan. Top dough with cheese, sauce, and toppings. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
