Ingredients

    4 cups whole wheat or white flour
    1 tablespoon sugar or honey
    1 packet of yeast, or 3 teaspoons
    2 teaspoons salt
    1/4 cup oil
    1-1/3 cups warm water

Directions

In a big bowl combine the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. Mix it up together with a fork or spoon. Add the oil and warm water. The water should be luke warm, not hot. Use a wooden spoon to stir all of this up until it begins to form a soft dough. Take out the spoon and dig in with your hands. If you use a big enough bowl, you can knead the dough right in the bowl. The dough doesn't have to be kneaded as much as regular bread dough. Usually I do it for about two minutes, or until the dough is smooth, resilient and well formed. Next the dough has to rest for TWENTY minutes.

After the dough has rested, divide it into two balls to press into your pans. This amount of dough is enough to cover 2 round pizza pans or 2 - 9 by 13-inch rectangular pans. This recipe will also make 6-8 personal sized pizzas.

Press the dough into the pans, to the best of your ability. Then the crusts must be PRE-BAKED before filling. Preheat your oven to 425. Bake the plain crusts for about 8 minutes, or until they puff up and appear slightly dry on the surface.


To Prepare Pizza:
Remove the partially cooked crusts from the oven. Top with tomato sauce, cheese and what ever else you like. (Not calculted) Bake at 425 until the cheese is hot and bubbly, or about 10 to 15 minutes.
