How to Make Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
- In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Add yeast, dissolve and let stand 10 minutes until it proofs and is foamy. Add olive oil and salt to yeast mixture. Then add whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour until dough begins to come together. Put dough onto surface dusted with all-purpose flour. Knead until flour has been absorbed and ball of dough is smooth - about 8 - 10 minutes. Coat a bowl with EVOO and add ball of dough and coat surface of dough with the oil. Cover top of bowl with a kitchen towel and place in oven with the light on to rise for about an hour. It should be doubled in size. When dough has risen, turn dough onto lightly floured surface and divide into 2 pieces for thin crust or leave it whole for a thick crust. Form into a tight ball and let rise about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°. Roll dough with a rolling pin and pull dough with it shaped over your fist to desired size of pizza pan. Place on well oiled or sprayed pan. Top with your favorite toppings. Bake until bubbly. Picture shown is a BBQ Chicken Pizza and a deep dish Turkey Pepperoni Pizza.
