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
  • Ingredients


  1. Place a pizza stone on the bottom rack.  Preheat the oven to 500°F. 
  2. If using a pizza pan or baking sheet, preheat the oven to 475°F. 
  3. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Just before putting the pizza in to bake, reduce the oven temperature to 375°F.
  8. Work with half of the dough at a time according to individual recipe requirements.

Egregia Signora Esposito,
Lei ha un modo di fare la cucina e di spiegarla che somiglia a un regalo
del cielo. “A tavola non s’invecchia” dicono tutti.
Con Lei, è vero.
Buon 2013 e che sia un anno ricco e pieno zeppo di salute.
Post scriptum: Siamo in vacanze e abbiamo visto il Suo programma alla televisione di Florida per la prima volta.
