Bruschetta Pizza on Herb Crust

We go to this resteraunt and they serve Bruschetta...we LOVE it. So I wanted to make a Bruschetta pizza, I was estatic. I had no recipes to go by so I just used my head :-) Boy did I make something amazing :-)

Herb Crust
1 C Warm Water
2 1/4 Tsp  Yeast
 ( I use Red Star yeast and love it)
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Olive Oil
2 1/2 -3 C. Flour
1 Tablespoon of Corn meal
1 Tsp of Basil
1 Tsp of Oregano
1 Tsp Garlic Powder

Run hot water in  your mixing bowl to get  your bowl warm. Get 1 C of Warm water ( not to hot or it'll kill yeast  105-115 degrees). Add your yeast. Stir till it dissolves. Add salt, olive oil ,lour and seasonings and mix it. If you have a kitchen aid just mix it using that. Add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time till it cleans the side of the bowl. Knead it 2 minutes longer.  Let it rise 1 hour in a warm draft free spot. Once it has doubled in size then on your pizza pan drizzle oil and sprinkle corn meal on it. Spread out your dough on the pizza pan. Bake at 350 till done. Cool it completely.
