3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon cornmeal
4 ounces string cheese
½ cup chopped peppers and onions (optional)

Sprinkle cornmeal over greased 14-inch pizza pan. On floured surface, roll dough into 15-inch circle. Transfer to pan, letting dough drape over edge. Cut cheese in half lengthwise, arrange on dough around edge of pan. Top with vegetables. Fold dough over stuffing, pinching to seal. Prick dough thoroughly with fork, brush with remaining ½ tablespoon oil. Bake 5 minutes. Remove crust from oven, top as desired with pizza sauce, pepperoni, grated mozzarella cheese. Bake 18 minutes or until cheese melts, crust is golden brown.
