Number of Servings: 1


    For one cookie sheet size pizza use:
    1 cup water
    1 tbsp oil
    1 tbsp honey
    2.5 cups whole wheat flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp yeast


1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Prepare this according to the yeast you're using (instant or active, but I used instant so I could just combine everything together).

2. Knead the dough on a floured surface for a few minutes. Add small amounts of flour as you knead if it's extremely sticky, but otherwise let it be.

3. Place the kneaded ball of dough back into your mixing bowl, which you should coat with oil so it doesn't stick.

4. Cover the bowl with a tea towel or some other covering, and allow the dough to rise in a warm (not hot and not cold - but inbetween!) environment for 60 - 90 minutes.

5. Roll the dough out onto an oiled cookie sheet (this recipe makes enough dough for ONE large cookie sheet sized pizza!), and let rise for an additional 10 minutes.

6. The dough is now your pizza base. You can add sauce and toppings as you desire!

    Sorry about not including baking times and temps. Jenny never mentioned that when she shared the recipe, & I just kind of do it by *feel*. If I have a lot of toppings, I'll cook it longer (15+ min) & at a reduced temp (350 F perhaps) - & if I have few toppings it's 12 min @ 400 F or so. HTH! :)

    I only used 1/2 tsp salt for this recipe and I also only used half the dough to make an extra thin crust. Preheated my oven to 500* for 45min then turned it down to 400* and cooked for 15min. Turned out very good! - 7/15/10

    We loved this! I also added some ground flax seed & italian seasoning to the dough. It worked well in my bread machine. - 3/5/11

    I think this pizza dough was AMAZING. The kids even loved it. Not too thin or thick. I found an amazing pizza recipe on here that uses this crust, but can no longer locate it. THANK YOU!! - 1/19/09
