Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Sunday night was homemade pizza night. If you haven’t had one of those recently, I highly recommend it. It’s so fun! This crust made 2 10-inch pizzas and was good. Also, so easy!

what you’ll need:

  • 1/8 tsp. sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

how you’ll do it:

preheat the oven to 350*
in a small bowl, dissolve sugar in water, then pour yeast on top until it becomes foamy, about 5 min.

start combining with a wooden spoon until the dough begins to stick together
put dough out onto a lightly floured surface and begin kneading with your hands, folding a quarter-turn onto itself each time for about 10 minutes

grease a large bowl and form the dough into a ball
