Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Serving Size : 16
Preparation Time :0:30

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in the water, and let sit
for 10 minutes.

Stir the salt and oil into the yeast solution. Mix in wheat flour and 1/2
cups of the white flour.

Turn dough out onto a clean, well floured surface, and knead in more flour
until the dough is no longer sticky. Place the dough into a well oiled
bowl, and cover with a cloth. Let the dough rise until double; this should
take about 1 hour. Punch down the dough, and form a tight ball. Allow the
dough to relax for a minute before rolling out. Use for your favorite
pizza recipe.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). If you are baking the dough
on a pizza stone, you may place your toppings on the dough, and bake
immediately. If you are baking your pizza in a pan, lightly oil the pan,
and let the dough rise for 15 or 20 minutes before topping and baking it.

Bake pizza in preheated oven, until the cheese and crust are golden brown,
about 15 to 20 minutes.

"This simple pizza crust is chewy and soft, with a crispy exterior."
