Cornmeal Pizza Crust
The dough can be made the night before and then formed into rounds just before the party. Set out a variety of toppings in bowls, and let guests assemble their own pizzas before baking them. We particularly like roasted tomatoes with fresh mozzarella cheese, and thinly sliced baby artichokes and eggplant with grated Asiago cheese. Pureed butternut squash, caramelized red onions, grated fontina cheese, and toasted pumpkin seeds make for an unexpected but perfectly delicious autumnal pie.
