Introduction

This is a GREAT pizza dough...but keep in mind the nutrition information is for the crust only! This is a GREAT pizza dough...but keep in mind the nutrition information is for the crust only!
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1.5 tsp (or 1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 cup warm water
    1/2 - 1 tbsp olive oil
    Cornmeal for sprinkling (optional)
    1 tbsp each garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder or whatever spices you want (to taste)
    p\Pinch of sugar

Directions

1. Mix a little sugar into the warm water.
2. Sprinkle yeast on top.
3. Wait for 10 minutes or until it gets all foamy.
4. Pour into a large bowl.
5. Add flour, salt, olive oil.
6. Combine.
7. Knead for 6-8 minutes until you have a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (add a bit more flour if you need to).
8. Cover and let rest for 20-30 minutes.
9. Lightly grease two 12-inch pizza pans.
10. Sprinkle with a little bit of cornmeal.
11. Divide dough in half.
12. Place each half on a pizza pan and pat it with your fingers until it stretches over the whole pan.
13. Try to make it thicker around the edge.
14. If desired, pre-bake at 425 F for 10 minutes (I don't always do this).
15. Then spread with pizza sauce and use the toppings of your choice.
16. Bake at 425 F for 10-20 minutes longer or until bubbly and hot.
17. Makes 2 12-inch pizzas.
18. If you don't want to use all the dough, you can freeze it.
19. Take a portion of dough, form into a ball, rub olive oil over it and place it in a freezer bag (the oil makes it easier to take out of the bag).
20. When you want to make a pizza, take dough out of freezer and allow to thaw before using.

Each pizza yields 4 servings of 2 pieces of pizza.

    This is a really tasty whole wheat pizza crust! I used 3/4 of the dough to make one large pizza for dinner, and used the rest for mini calzones for my kids to take to school. We topped it with oven-roasted tomatoes, feta cheese, spinach leaves, caramelized onions and roasted garlic. Delicious! - 9/11/07

    This was AWESOME! I seperated it into 8 equal sizes (weighed) and rolled it as thin as a tortilla. Prebaked for about 6-7 minutes and then added ital sausage, onion, pizza cheese and topped with chopped tomatoes. This was delish, my husbnad gobbled it up! No more boboli, or flat bread crusts for us! - 8/15/08

    I have never made pizza dough before, and this turned out great. The whole family liked it! In fact, after dinner I doubled the recipe and put four balls of pizza dough in the freezer for future enjoyment! - 3/20/08

    This tasted great! I even par baked one, added toppings and froze it for my husband to eat at a later time. It rose nicely and smelled wonderful while baking (like garlic bread). Will definitely make again! - 12/28/07

    Used this crust for our Superbowl party. Everyone thought it was great with the added bonus of being healthy I tried it with both 100% wholewheat flour and the ratio of whole wheat to white flour. For my crowd, I will stick to the original recipe. - 2/1/09

    This pizza crust was fantastic! I modified the recipe a bit. I only used whole wheat flour (2.5 cups). I used 1tsp italian seasoning and .5 tsp garlic powder and .5 tsp salt. It was the perfect amount of dough for our 15 inch pampered chef stone pizza pan. Everyone in the family loved it. yummy! - 5/13/08

    I'll never buy pizza again. This was incredible and the dough was so nice and easy to work with, I could roll it out really thin. The flavor was outstanding as well. My husband and 2-year old could not stop eating. Fantastic! - 2/8/09

    LOVED IT! Very easy to make, for a first-timer, and it tasted wonderful! I will be passing this on to everyone I know. I added homemade sauce, red & green peppers, pineapple, spinach, low-fat cheese and canadian bacon. It was a huge hit, thanks for the delicious crust! - 3/4/09

    I first made this crust months ago, and it's been my go-to recipe ever since. I love the addition of seasonings to the crust, it's so tasty this way! I usually add a full tablespoon of oil, sometimes more. This dough comes together quickly and easily. - 6/8/13

    Thought this crust held up really good to lots of toppings. It stayed nice and sturdy and had a good flavor. One adjustment I'll make to make it a bit more appealing to the kids is to add a touch of honey to see if that sweetens it up. I also might experiment with using only whole wheat flour. - 5/19/12
