Number of Servings: 16


    1 pkg Active Dry Yeast
    1 Tbsp sugar
    1-1/3 cups very warm water
    1.5 cups whole wheat flour
    2 cups white flour
    2 Tbsp olive oil
    1 Tbsp salt
    1.25 cup shredded mozarella cheese
    1/2 cup tomato sauce


Measure your very warm water in a 2 cup measuring cup. Add sugar and mix until dissolved. Sprinkle yeast into measuring cup and mix. Let stand while you prepare the rest of your ingredients.
Add flour, olive oil and salt to a large bowl. Once yeast mixture has started to froth, add it to the flour mixture. Mix in the bowl until dough ball forms. Turn dough out onto lightly floured board (or counter). Knead for about 10 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic - tacky, not sticky.
drizzle a bit more olive oil into bowl and return dough ball to the bowl, coating the ball with oil from the bowl, turning it so that the dough is coated all over with a bit of oil.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 90 minutes (or doubled in bulk).
Preheat oven to 450F.
Punch down the dough - you can make one large, thick-crusted pizza, 2 think crusted pizzas, or several (up to 7 or 8) personal pizzas. I often make one big and a batch of soft bread sticks (with a bit of olive oil, salt and garlic powder).
Shape dough into desired sizes. Make slight indentations with you fingers to avoid bubbling of the dough and brush lightly with olive oil.
Prepare desired toppings while dough rests.
Add tomato sauce, 1/2 the cheese, toppings, then top with remainder of cheese.
Bake for about 12 minutes. Enjoy!
