Italian Style Pizza DoughSubmitted by: SWEETSUNSHINE72
IntroductionA healthier crust that will WOW you!!! A healthier crust that will WOW you!!!
2 1/4 teaspoons fast rising yeast
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons italian seasoning
1 1/2 cups warm water
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
Stir the salt, oil and italian seasoning into the yeast mixture. Mix in 2 1/2 cups of the flour. Turn dough out onto a clean, dry surface and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Place the dough into a well oiled bowl, and cover with a cloth. Let the dough double in size. Should take about 1/2 hour if in warm spot.
Punch down and let rest a minute. Roll out, and put onto a pan. You can put parchment paper underneath, or cornmeal, or simply grease the pan.
Once the dough is shaped, bake it plain for about 5-10 minutes, then pull out of oven , just seems to work better every time. Add your favourite toppings and bake in preheated oven 425 degrees until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 20 minutes.
Serves 8 - 12 (depending on how hungry you are!). Calculations are done for 12, with no toppings.
Number of Servings: 12
