It's a simple technique that combines precooked polenta with water and flour until it makes a dough like consistency. The crust is prebaked before being topped with tomato sauce, red peppers, and green onions. To take a look at this scrumptious, vegetarian pizza,

I don't eat polenta either. But for some reason that pizza still looks great.

Looks great but I don't do polenta in a tube. That just creeps me out for some reason! Could you make this with day-old homemade polenta?
