   Believe it or not, this pizza is ready in half an
   hour. PREHEAT OVEN TO 500F.
   (MIXING AND KNEADING: 1 1/2 MINUTES.) Place the yeast
   and 1 cup of the flour in the bowl of a food processor
   and pulse once using the metal knife or the plastic
   dough blade. With the machine running, pour in the hot
   water (make certain it’s hot when you use it). As soon
   as it’s in, turn the machine off; add the salt and
   remaining 2 cups of flour. Next, pulse until the dough
   begins to hold together; then let the machine run
   continously until a ball of dough forms.
   (ASSEMBLY: 5 MINUTES.) Lightly oil the pan with
   vegetable oil and dust with coarsely ground yellow
   cornmeal. Press the dough out into an 8-inch circle
   with your fingertips and then roll or stretch it out
   into a 15-or-18-inch pizza shell. Fit the shell onto
   prepared pan. Sprinkle desired toppings over dough,
   and finish with a drizzling of olive oil. Bake 15
   minutes or until the crust is golden and the topping
   is bubbly. For a well-done crust bake 5 minutes
   longer. Makes 1 Pizza
