Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

I had never made my own pizza dough before. After making this recipe, I'm never going to buy canned pizza dough again! This was great and easy to make. The only down fall is that you have to let it rise for about an hour.

This is part one of three recipes for pizza. Tomorrow will be homemade pizza sauce!

Total Time: 75 Minutes
Makes one 16 inch thick crust pizza (6 servings)

  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
In a mixing bowl, combine the water and one cup of the white flour. Add in yeast, sugar, salt and oil. whisk together to make a "spongy" dough. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

Add the remaining two cups of flour and stir with a wodden spoon. When the dough becomes too thick, knead it by hand 6-8 minutes. Knead in seasonings and Parmesan cheese. Place in a greased bowl for 45 minutes to 1 hour to rise.

Once dough has doubled in size, place on a lightly floured work surface and roll out the dough to the desired size. Bake crust for 8 minutes, remove from oven and add toppings. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes longer or until golden brown.
