There are many things to love about this dough. It is easy, healthy, delicious, and very consistent every time I make it. You would not even notice that there is whole-wheat in this, that is because the secret is half white-flour, half wheat-flour. I love how it makes enough for 2 pies, if you are only using the dough for one, then just freeze the other in a plastic baggie and it will still be just as good when you pull it out of the freezer. (You can also make mini pizza doughs too.) I use my Kitchen Aid mixer but you could also make this dough without an electric mixer...just knead by hand for about 8 minutes. I always stick to using the mixer, but using your hand works just as well. Just takes longer. 🙂 Enjoy~
Makes 2 Pies
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/3 cup warm water
- 1 packet yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
- In a mixing bowl, combine the warm water and yeast. Stir in the salt and flour and mix on medium high speed on your Kitchen Aid for 5 minutes. While the mixer is going, drizzle in the olive oil. When the dough is soft and elastic, take out of the bowl, rub with olive oil and then place back in the bowl. Cover with a dish towel and let rise for one hour.
- After the dough has doubled in size, cut in half to make two large pizza doughs (or you can make mini doughs).
- When you are ready for your pizza, roll out the dough, cover with your toppings and bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes.
