Italian

White Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Ingredients:

1 cup warm water (between 100°-110°F)

2 1/4 teaspoons (or 1 packet) active dry yeast

1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups white whole wheat flour  (If using white flour, you will need about 3 cups, and whole wheat about 1 1/2 cups)

 

Directions:

  1. Measure water, yeast and sugar into a bowl or stand mixer and allow to sit until it’s active and foamy. Usually about 5 minutes or less. If it doesn’t, your water may have been too hot or cold or your yeast may be old.
  2. Add salt, oil, and  flour to the mixing bowl. Attach the dough hook to the stand mixer. Mix until the ingredients are combined. The mixture should come together into a ball that is just a bit sticky. If it’s not stick add a tiny bit of water, if it’s too sticky add flour.
  3. Allow dough to rise. Times will vary. I use a pizza stone to cook my pizza, so I only let the dough rise about 20 minutes.
  4. When ready to make pizza: turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into pizza shape.
  5. Preheat oven to 500°F. Place pizza stone in the oven while the oven is preheating.
  6. Cook for approximately 7 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
  7. When pizza is done, I usually like to rub a little bit of butter into the hot crust to make it more moist. Then I sprinkle Italian seasoning on it.
