Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup warm water for the yeast
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-½ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Oil the inside of a large bowl and set aside. This is for the dough to rise.
  • Pour ¼ cup warm water (100 to 110 degrees) in a large warmed bowl (the microwave will warm the bowl).
  • Stir in the yeast and set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the remaining water (1-¼ cup), oil and the salt.
  • Add the flours and stir until pretty well blended. It will not be smooth.
  • Turn out onto a floured counter and knead until smooth, adding a little more flour when you need to keep it from sticking.
  • A little sticky is okay.
  • Form into a ball.
  • Place the dough ball in the large greased bowl and turn the dough so that it gets oil on all sides. If you don't do this you will get a dry crust on the outside of the ball.
  • Cover the bowl and set aside (out of a draft) until the dough has doubled in size - 40 to 60 minutes.
  • Divide the dough in half for 2 thin crust 15" pizzas.
  • Divide again for smaller pizzas.
  • Shape the dough into balls and set on a floured counter.
  • Cover again with a towel and let rise another 20-30 minutes.
  • You can freeze the balls at this point or roll them out and freeze flat.
  • To continue making a pizza now - put the dough on your pizza pan.
  • Push out with your fingers to the size of pizza you want.
  • Cover with a towel again and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Add your pizza sauce and any toppings that you desire.
  • I used onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper and mushrooms. Oh, yeah. And vegan mozzarella.
  • Bake in a hot oven at 425° for 18 minutes. Slice.
  • One Serving is ¼th of the pizza for the nutritional facts but dine on whatever you like.

Notes

You can freeze the dough in an airtight freezer bag up to 4 months.
TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING:
Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator the day before serving.  When defrosted roll out, top and bake as described above.
