In large bowl, combine yeast and sugar in warm water.  Allow to stand or proof for about 10 minutes, until foamy. Whisk in semolina flour and 3/4 cup bread flour. Set aside, loosely covered, for 1 hour. Add remaining flour, salt and pepper. Knead dough about 10 minutes or until soft dough is formed, adding additional flour as needed. Place in a large greased bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place in Sub-Zero refrigerator overnight. The dough will keep for about two days.

Position bakestone rack and bakestone in Wolf oven in rack position 1 (lowest position). Preheat oven in BAKESTONE at 500°F (260°C).  Allow about 35 minutes for oven to preheat. Punch dough down. Roll dough into 12-inch circle on lightly floured surface.  Place dough on cornmeal covered pizza peel*.  Top with desired pizza toppings. Bake 8 to 12 minutes, or until cheese is browned.  A thicker crust will take longer to bake.

Makes 8 servings.

*Dough may be divided in half for thinner crusted pizzas.
