- In a large bowl, combine flour, garlic, rosemary, salt, pepper and yeast.
- Using a wooden spoon or your hand, add water and mix until a wet, sticky dough forms, about 30 seconds.
- Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until surface is dotted with bubbles, about 18 to 24 hours.
- Lightly oil a 10-inch cast iron skillet or coat with nonstick spray; sprinkle with cornmeal.
- Working on a lightly floured surface, gently shape dough into a round.
