Place a baking sheet on middle rack of oven. Preheat oven to 400°. Generously grease two 12-inch round pizza pans. Sprinkle each pan with cornmeal if desired.
Step 1: In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup of the flour, yeast and salt until well blended.
Step 2: Add very warm water and shortening. Mix by hand until almost smooth.
Step 3: Gradually stir in remaining 1 1/2 cups flour to make a firm dough. Cover let rest for 15 minutes.
Step 4: Divide dough in half. With well-floured fingers, press half of dough into each pizza pan. Generously prick dough with a fork.
Place one pizza pan on preheated baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or just until edges begin to turn a light golden brown. Remove from oven. Bake second crust on hot baking sheet.
Add desired toppings and bake as directed in individual recipes.
