What You Need

2 to 2-1/2
cups  all-purpose flour
 package active dry yeast
 teaspoon salt
cup  warm water (120 degree F to 130 degree F)
tablespoons  cooking oil
cup  cornmeal
 pound ground beef
cup  chopped onion
 8-ounce can tomato sauce
 2-1/4-ounce can sliced pitted ripe olives, drained
 1-1/4-ounce envelope taco seasoning mix
cups  shredded cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
cups  shredded lettuce
cups  chopped tomatoes
medium  avocados, seeded, peeled, and chopped
 8-ounce carton dairy sour cream
 Chili powder (optional)

Make It

1. In a large bowl combine 1-1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and salt. Add warm water and 2 tablespoons oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a spoon, stir in cornmeal and as much of the remaining flour as you can.

2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Divide dough in half. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

3. Grease two 11- to 13-inch pizza pans or baking sheets. On a lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough into a circle 1 inch larger than pizza pan. Transfer dough to pans. Build up edges slightly. Flute edges, if desired. Prick generously with a fork. Do not let rise. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook ground beef and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat. Stir in tomato sauce, olives, and taco seasoning mix; heat through.

5. Spread ground beef mixture over hot crusts. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake about 12 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, and avocados. Spoon sour cream into center of each pizza. Sprinkle sour cream with chili powder, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
