Ingredients

  • 1 c. warm water
  • 1 pkg dry yeast
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1 ¾ c. whole-wheat flour
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp. salt (Use the code kitchenstewardship for 15% off of your first purchase)
  • 1 tsp. olive oil (use the code STEWARDSHIP for 10% off at that site!)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine warm water, yeast, and honey. Let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile combine both flours with salt. Add flour mixture to yeast and work to form dough.
  3. Knead for 2 minutes.
  4. Evenly coat a large bowl with olive oil.
  5. Place dough in oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  6. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease two baking sheets.
  7. Punch down dough and divide into two or four balls (depending on whether you want two family pizzas or 4 individuals).
  8. Flatten and shape into 4-8″ or 2-14″ circles. Top with toppings and bake for 15-25 minutes until crispy. (We liked thin crust better since whole wheat gets a bit dense.)
