    mersaydees's Note:

    I positively love this recipe! This is for when you really need a yummy and impressive appetizer! Based on a recipe from Michele Anna Jordan's book, Polenta. She says, "Of all the various toppings we tried with this crust, this was by far everyone's favorite. There is a tradition of sweet focaccia, an Italian flat bread not exactly the same, yet not entirely unlike pizza, and one version calls for grapes. Here, in this polenta version, mild and creamy Brie complements the sweet grapes, and toasted walnuts provide additional flavor and texture." This recipe calls for a baking stone; mine goes into a cold oven and gets preheated with the oven. Preparation time includes 2 1/2 hours rising time.

      This is great! I really loved the combination of the ingredients. I never made my own pizza crust before and this one was quite tasty. I used corn meal (that's the same as polenta, right?) and for half the flour I used whole wheat. It was easier than I thought, but if my lazy streak kicks in, I'll bet the toppings would be excellent on flatbread or pita rounds...
