Rosemary Beer Focaccia from The Beeroness

This makes an excellent pizza dough, even without the rosemary.

Makes about four pounds of dough 
= three large OR six small pizzas

Stand Mixer with paddle attached, bowls and spatula

2 3/4 cups lukewarm/100 deg water
1 tablespoon granulated yeast
1 1/2 tablespoons, or less, kosher salt
3 tablespoons sugar OR honey, agave syrup, malt powder
3/4 cup olive oil
6 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal

Wet: Mix the yeast, salt and sweetener with the water 
and olive oil in the mixer on low.

Dry: Combine the cornmeal and flour in a large bowl.

Combine: Add the cornmeal/flour to the mixer slowly, 
in small steps, until dough is formed.

Sit:   Let the dough sit, covered loosely, at room temp 
for about two hours.  The dough should rise and flatten 
on the top.

Use immediately after the initial rise, or refrigerate 
loosely covered for up to a week; or freeze for up to 
three weeks - thawing overnight prior to use.
