Ingredients

    4 cups whole wheat flour
    2 tsp instant yeast
    3/4 cup very warm water [115-120F]
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/2 tsp salt

    drizzle of oil to coat bowl [not included]


Tips

If you use all purpose flour, decrease the yeast to 1 tsp.

Eliminating the olive oil makes for a crispier crust.
