  1. With a kitchenaid mixer, mix the yeast with the warm water and dissolve yeast completely.
  2. Add the vegetable oil, olive oil, cornmeal and 1/2 of the flour. Beat for 10 minutes.
  3. Attach the dough hook and mix in the remaining flour. Knead with the mixer for several minutes.
  4. Place dough on clean countertop and cover with a large metal bowl to allow to rise double in bulk.
  5. Punch down and allow to rise again. Punch down a 2nd time and the dough is ready.
  6. Oil a deep-dish pizza pan. Place some dough in the pan and push it out to the edges using your fingers. Put enough dough so that you can run the crust right up the side of the pan. Make it about 1/8 thick throughout the pan.
  7. Place the cheese in tile-like layers on the bottom of the pie.
  8. Put in the tomatoes, the basil, oregano, garlic, and salt.
  9. Add your toppings - in this recipe we include ground beef, green pepper and onion.
  10. Add the shredded mozzarella cheese, drizzle the olive oil and add the parmesan cheese over the top.
  11. Bake the pie in the 475 degree oven until the top is golden and gooey and the crust is light golden brown - about 35 minutes.
