1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
2 1/4 tsp quick-rising yeast (yay for fast-rising technology)
2/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp raw sugar
1/2-2/3 Cup hot water (120-130F)
2 tsp EVOO
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook combine and quickly mix flours, yeast, salt and sugar. With the machine on low slowly pour water over the dry mixture…adding just enough water so the mixture forms a cohesive ball but is still pretty moist. Let the machine run for about another minute to knead the dough. Transfer the pizza dough to a lightly floured/oiled surface and cover with Saran wrap for about 15 minutes (the quick rising part!).
Preheat the oven to 450F. Now slowly stretch out/shape the dough into whatever pizza formation you can conjure up. Once you add your toppings (check out my pizza ideas page) place your pizza on a pizza stone in the oven or on a pizza/baking sheet. Bake for about 12-15 min…I like to cook it until the crust is slightly brown…or if you’re using cheese, until the cheese is browning on top.
