Whole Wheat Honey Pizza Dough

  • 4 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Mix yeast, water and honey and let stand 5 min.

Combine flour through cornmeal in a large bowl.

Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, stir up a bit, then add in olive oil. Knead until everything is well combined. If it seems a little dry, you can add a bit more water at this point, but I don’t generally need to.

Cover dough in a bowl with a towel in a warm place for 30 min.

Punch down and roll out dough, add toppings and bake @ 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until done.

Makes enough dough to cover one whole cookie sheet (which is what I do)
