Step 1:
In a large bowl or plastic container, mix yeast and salt into
3 cup
lukewarm water
(about 100 degrees)
Stir in flour, mixing until there are no dry patches. Dough will be quite loose.
Cover, but not with an airtight lid. Let dough rise at room temperature 2 hours (or up to 5 hours).
Bake at this point or refrigerate, covered, for as long as two weeks.
Step 2:
When ready to bake, sprinkle a little flour on dough and cut off a grapefruit-size piece with serrated knife.
Turn dough in hands to lightly stretch surface, creating a rounded top and a lumpy bottom.
Put dough on pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal; let rest 40 minutes.
Repeat with remaining dough or refrigerate it.
Step 3:
Place broiler pan on bottom of oven.
Place baking stone on middle rack and turn oven to 450 degrees;
heat stone at that temperature for 20 minutes.
