Now you can feel a little less guilty about eating pizza with our wholewheat dough recipe! Wholewheat is loaded with anti-oxidants, …
- 1 1/2 cups water warm - 115 degrees
- 2 packets active dry yeast (1/4 ounce each)
- 1/4 cup olive oil + more for bowl
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp coarse salt
- 2 cups all purpose flour (spooned and leveled) + more for kneading
- 2 cups whole-wheat flour (spooned and leveled)
- Pour warm water into a large bowl and sprinkle the yeast on top. Leave until it starts to foam (around 5 minutes). In the meantime brush another large bowl with oil.
- Add sugar oil and salt to the bowl containing yeast and water. Gradually add the flours stirring continuously until you get a sticky dough. Transfer to oiled bowl and brush the top of the dough with oil. Cover the bowl and leave in warm spot until dough has doubled in size (around 1 hour).
- Place the dough onto a well-floured surface and, with floured hands, knead until smooth. After about 15 seconds of kneading, divide into 2 equal balls.
- Place the balls on a plate so they are not touching and freeze for one hour until firm. After this point, you can freeze them in a freezer bag for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
- When ready to bake divide each dough ball into 4 discs, about 5 inch in size. Add desired toppings and bake in a 450 degree oven for 18-20 minutes until crust is golden brown.
