Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe
I absolutely LOVE pizza. I probably eat it at least once a week. The downfall is it’s not really that healthy for you (bummer). I have been trying to eat healthier so I have been searching for a good pizza recipe that isn’t as horrible for you to eat. I came across an AMAZING recipe. This pizza dough recipe calls for honey which makes the flavor of the crust rich and flavorful. This recipe comes from Laurie McNamara (simplyscratch.com).
1 packet or 1-1/4 tsp of Active Dry Yeast
1/2 tsp Honey
1 cup warm water (110-120 degrees F.)
1 tsp olive oil
1-1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 tsp Kosher Salt
**This recipe makes 2 medium thin crusts or one large regular crust.
In your mixer bowl add the honey, warm water and stir to dissolve.
Sprinkle the yeast on top and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Add in the olive oil and turn your mixer on low.
Gradually add in your all purpose and wheat flours and increase the mixing speed.
Season the dough with salt and continue to mix the dough until it forms a ball inside the bowl.
Remove the dough and form a smooth ball.
Put the dough in a well oiled bowl. Cover with a clean towel and place the bowel in a warm, dry place to rise for 1 hour.
Your dough should look something like this. Use your hands to press the gas out of the dough and roll into the desired size.
Use your favorite sauce and toppings and bake in the oven at 400 degrees F. for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
