Larger, gritty cornmeal
« on: April 07, 2016, 02:22:21 PM »
I want to bake my crust on gritty cornmeal. My favorite pizza from Monicals is cooked that way.

This past weekend I did a fairly decent attempt at a recipe. However, the cornmeal I used on the bottom of the dough was way too soft and ground up too fine.

Can anyone recommend a good gritty cornmeal with larger pieces? I don't have access to a close Trader Joe's or whole foods.

Thank you.

Bob's red mill has a coarse grind cornmeal. Seen it at wally world.

You can also grind your own from popcorn.

Look for Goya brand too. They have a coarse corn meal. Walmart has it.

I had no idea, but it makes perfect sense. I may try that someday. For now I'll look for it in Kroger or Walmart.
