Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

I haven't actually used this one yet, but it comes highly recommended, and I've been wanting a ww pizza dough recipe (my regular one doesn't work so well with wheat flour), and I don't want to lose this one...
I got it from ZestyCook here (but just in case they ever take down their site, I'm copying and pasting the recipe too!)

  • 1 1/2 Cups Warm Water
  • 2 Packets Active Dry Yeast (this is about 5tsp for those of us who buy the big jars!)
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 2 Tsp. Salt
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  1. Place water in large bowl - sprinkle with yeast.
  2. Let stand until foamy (about 5 minutes).
  3. Brush another large bowl with Olive Oil.
  4. In bowl with yeast, whisk sugar, oil and salt. Stir in flours until a sticky dough forms.
  5. Transfer to oiled bowl (brush top of dough with oil).
  6. Cover dough with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm place until it doubles in size (about an hour).
  7. Turn dough onto a well floured surface and knead until smooth.
  8. Preheat oven to 400°.
  9. Prepare dough in shape of pizza.
  10. Spread sauce and then most of the cheese.
  11. Add toppings as desired, top with remaining cheese (cheese on top helps hold on the toppings)
  12. Bake until crust golden brown and cheese has melted. Time varies depending on the thickness of your crust (12-20 minutes).

Uh, I think you mean 5 teaspoons, not tablespoons. Right?

LOL Carolyn, good catch. Yup. (I corrected it)
I never use the packets. Duh!
