      3/4 cup lukewarm water
      1 Tbsp yeast
      1.25 cups whole wheat flour
      1.25 cups all-purpose flour
      1 Tbsp sugar (optional)
      2 Tbsp olive oil
      1/2 tsp salt
      Various spices, to taste


Try garlic power, onion powder, Italian blends, or taco seasoning in the dough. The flavor is fabulous!


Measure 3/4 cup of lukewarm water and sprinkle the yeast on top. Proof for about 5 minutes while putting together the rest of the ingredients.

In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a medium mixing bowl, add the remaining ingredients. Mix together, then add the water/yeast and mix until it comes together in a ball of dough. You may need up to 1/4 cup more water to make the dough come together. Then either knead by hand or in the stand mixer until the dough passes the windowpane test, about 10 minutes.

Put into a greased bowl, cover, and let rise for one hour.

Roll out onto a greased pizza stone, top with your desired toppings, and then put into a COLD oven and set the temperature to 400. Pizza is done when the cheese is bubbling and browning. This will vary between 10-25 minutes depending on the size of pizzas made.
