1/4 cup finely ground yellow cornmeal
1 ball <u>Hazelnut Pizza Dough</u>
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
1 small green bell pepper, stemmed and seeded, cut crosswise into rings
3 ounces white button mushrooms, cleaned and thinly sliced
Preheat oven, preferably convection, to 500 degrees. Place pepper, mushrooms, and onion in a large bowl; drizzle with olive oil and toss to combine.
