(keep in mind the cooking time of these will be shorter than in an oven. Use toppings that take little time at all (if any) to actually cook and do not overload. Try using a soft or crumbled cheese and a cooked, warm sauce.)

DOUGH: Measure 1/2 c warm water in a bowl. Add sugar and yeast and stir to dissolve. Let stand at least 5 minutes to proof (froth forms on top).
Meanwhile, sift together into a large bowl the white flour, wheat flour, corn meal and salt. Make a depression in the middle and add 3 Ts of the olive oil and 1 c warm water. Add yeast mixture. Mix all ingredients with your hands and gather together and place on floured board. Knead about 10 minutes, adding more flour if dough is sticky, to form a smooth, elastic mass. Grease a large bowl with olive oil. Add dough, turning it to coat top.

Cover and let rise in warm place, draft−free location until doubled in size - about 45 minutes.

While dough is rising prepare desired sauces and toppings. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces and, on floured surface, roll out to desired shape about 1/2 inch thick. Coat both sides of shaped crust with olive oil, then place on grill directly over fire until upper surface begins to bubble (about 2 minutes). Fire must be very hot and grill must be clean (coals should be red with a small flame, like a steak fire; this is important). Watch crust closely and rotate with spatula if necessary. Remove crust and turn cooked side up (it should be golden brown).

Brush with olive oil, sauce, cheese and desired toppings. Sprinkle some olive oil over each pizza. Return for final cooking (2−4 minutes).
