Serving Size: 1/6 pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil (canola, olive, vegetable)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose white flour (divided)

Instructions

  1. Add yeast and water to a large bowl. Stir to dissolve yeast in water. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in sugar, salt, and oil.
  3. Stir in whole wheat flour and 1 cup white flour.
  4. Sprinkle remaining flour onto a clean work surface. Place dough on top of the floured work surface. Knead until the flour is completely mixed in with the dough, about 5 minutes. Form the dough into a ball.
  5. Spray the bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Set the ball of dough in the bowl. Cover with a towel. Let it rise in a warm, draft free place for 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  7. Spray a pizza pan or cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Stretch the pizza dough to fit the pan. Using a fork, prick the dough 10–15 times.
  8. Bake the crust for 6–8 minutes or until it begins to feel firm on top. Top as desired and bake 10–12 minutes more or until outer crust is lightly brown.

Tips

To knead dough, press it down, fold it in half, turn it 1/4 turn, press it down, fold it in half, turn it 1/4 turn, and repeat.

Toppings may include sauce, cheese, chopped vegetables, and cooked meat.

At step 7, sprinkle Italian seasoning, garlic powder, or parmesan cheese on top of the crust for added flavor.
