Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • cornmeal for rolling out 12 inch circle
  • 3 1/2 cup cups white whole wheat flour
  • whole wheat flour for dusting
  • 2 teaspoon raw brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup nonfat or soy milk (110-115 f.)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cup water (110-115 f)
  1. Dissolve yeast in a small bowl with water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Place flour, raw brown sugar, and salt in a bowl and mix well (you can use a mixer with a dough hook or you can do it the old fashioned way, by hand). Slowly add milk, yeast, and oil while mixing, until dough comes together in a ball.
  3. Sprinkle flour on table top and place dough on work surface. Knead until dough is smooth, about five minutes. Spray a large bowl with olive oil spray. Place dough in bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow to sit in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about one hour. Punch dough down, and allow to rise again, about 30 minutes.
  4. Split dough into four balls. Each will make a 12 inch pizza. Sprinkle your work space with the cornmeal. Roll the dough out and stretch into a 12 inch circle. If you own a pizza paddle, sprinkle the paddle with cornmeal and transfer the rolled out dough onto it or place pizza dough on a cooling rack. You’re ready to start loading it up with the good stuff!
