Combine in a small bowl water, yeast, and honey. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. In a medium bowl whisk together flour and salt until incorporated. Combine olive oil to yeast mixture and slowly add to flour and salt, stir until it forms a ball.

Lightly flour work surface, turn dough out and knead approximately 5 minutes or until smooth. Mist a medium bowl with olive oil, add dough and turn to coat all sides with oil. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rise until doubled in size, approximately one hour.

Sprinkle work surface with 1 tablespoon cornmeal, divide dough in half and roll to 1/4″ thick into two 12″ round shapes. Brush the top of each dough with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle each with the remaining 1 tablespoon cornmeal.

Place oiled side of dough on pre-heated griddle. Brush top of each dough with the remaining olive oil. Cook until bottoms are lightly browned, approximately 5 minutes. Turn dough over and cook until browned. Remove crusts and allow to cool until ready to add pizza sauce and toppings.
