Whole Wheat Quick Yeast Dough

Makes two 12-14-inch diameter pizze


1 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour

2 cups unbleached King Arthur flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 package pizza crust yeast

1 1/2 cups warm water (115°F to 120°F)

1 tablespoon honey or sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil


Place a pizza stone on the bottom rack.  Preheat the oven to 500°F. 

If using a pizza pan or baking sheet, preheat the oven to 475°F. 

Combine the flours, salt and yeast in a bowl.  Add the water, honey or sugar and olive oil.  Combine to make a smooth ball of dough.  Place 1 cup of flour in a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add the yeast, water, salt, honey and olive oil and mix until blended. Add remaining 2 cups of flour and mix until the dough comes together.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead it with your hands for a couple of minutes. Use a bench knife to divide the dough in half.

Just before putting the pizza in to bake, reduce the oven temperature to 375°F.
Work with half of the dough at a time according to individual recipe requirements.
