Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
Yield: 1 ball of dough
Prep Time: 15 min + resting time
Cook Time: 10 min
SO easy to make. Great, crispy crust. We use this for every pizza we make.
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon granulated white sugar
3/4 cup hot water (120° to 130°F)
1 tablespoon extra- virgin olive oil
1. Combine flours, yeast, salt and sugar in a food processor; pulse to mix. Combine hot water and oil in a measuring cup. With the motor running, gradually pour in enough of the hot liquid until the mixture forms a sticky ball. The dough should be quite soft. If it seems dry, add 1 to 2 Tablespoons warm water; if too sticky, add 1 to 2 Tablespoons of flour. Process until dough forms a ball, then process for 1 minute to knead.
2. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Coat a sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray and place it, sprayed-side down, over the dough. Let the dough rest for 10 to 20 minutes before rolling.
3. Place a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet on the lowest oven rack; preheat oven to 500°F. or highest setting. Roll and top the pizza as desired and bake the pizza until the bottom is crisp and golden, 10 to 14 minutes.
