100% Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 8

Ingredients

  • 1 3/8 cup water lukewarm
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 4 cups 100% whole wheat pastry flour or regular whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Instructions

Stand Mixer Method

  • Add liquids, then dry ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer. (Take care not to let yeast and salt touch.)
  • Fit mixer with dough hook. Mix on low speed until dough ball forms and cleans the sides of the bowl. (2-5 minutes)
  • (If dough ball is too sticky, add more flour, 1 T at a time. If it is too dry, add more water, 1 T. at a time.)
  • Divide dough in half.
  • Roll dough out into desired shape. This recipe makes 2 large rectangles or 4 12-15 inch rounds.
  • Reserve any unused dough in a dough ball. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then stow in a large zip top plastic bag. Freeze.

Mix by Hand Method

  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. As soon as the dough is too tough to stir with a spoon, transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead by hand 10 minutes, or until dough is pliable and doesn't stick to hands.
  • (If dough ball is too sticky, add more flour, 1 T at a time. If it is too dry, add more water, 1 T. at a time.)
  • Divide dough in half.
  • Roll dough out into desired shape. This recipe makes 2 large rectangles or 4 12-15 inch rounds.
  • Reserve any unused dough in a dough ball. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then stow in a large zip top plastic bag. Freeze.
